COURTENAY, B.C. – The pressure will be released on existing sewer service infrastructure next week.

Crews are set to start construction on a new sewer line.

The Greenwood Trunk line will direct wastewater from the East Courtenay area and CFB Comox to an existing main along Knight Road in Comox.

The sewer route starts at the eastern boundary of Courtenay (Anderton Road) and ends at Military Row near 19 Wing Comox.

A notice from the CVRD stated that construction would start at Snowberry Avenue and then move to Oceanspray Road, Belair Road and Ryan Road this summer.

The work on Ryan Road to Anderton is set to take place in the fall, with construction ending at Rose Avenue, Hardhack Street and Military Row.

The project is scheduled to be completed in December.

While the work is underway, drivers can expect alternating one-way traffic.

The Comox Valley Regional District is going to be posting updates regularly at comoxvalleyrd.ca/greenwoodtrunk.
