Drivers headed to the airport are advised that construction work on the Knight Road portion of the new Hudson Trunk sewer line project is expected to begin at the end of March and continue until late-April.

To allow for the construction, one lane of traffic will need to be closed. Access for local residents and businesses will be maintained, but traffic delays should be expected. Drivers using this route to pass through are encouraged to use alternate routes, including Ryan Road/Military Row and Pritchard Road.

The Hudson Trunk regional sewer line is an important improvement for the sustainability of the Comox Valley Regional District’s sewer service. It will directly connect neighbourhoods in northeast Courtenay to the sewage treatment plant (the Comox Valley Water Pollution Control Centre) on Brent Road, bypassing the Courtenay Pump Station.

“Completion of this new line is a very important improvement for the region’s sewer service,” said Charlie Gore, the CVRD’s Manager of Capital Projects. “We are working to divert flow away from the Courtenay Pump Station and create capacity for future growth in the community.”

Work on the Hudson Trunk line has progressed well and construction is expected to be complete in early May 2018. Any further updates will be shared on the project’s web page www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/hudsontrunk and via mailed/email updates. Anyone interested in receiving these updates is invited to email.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
