Construction on 3rd and McBride Now Underway

Work is finally underway to replace the damaged traffic lights at one of Prince Rupert’s busiest intersections-- the corner of McBride and Third Avenue West.


Prince Rupert’s Marcan Construction Company is currently working on the site, preparing the area for the process of re-installation.

Due to construction work that’s now in motion, the City has made note of some traffic changes in the surrounding area.

‘The traffic lane that heads east down Third Avenue towards Cow Bay has now been closed to Traffic, with Drivers heading towards that area of town being rerouted down McBride to 1st Avenue East.’

Construction is expected to be complete in the next two weeks.
