A notice of increased construction conditions began Wednesday as the civil works portion of the Baker Street lanes conversion project — downtown electrical upgrade —will have an increased presence by the addition of a second excavation and placement crew.

The additional crew has been implemented in order to restore scheduling and recoup time lost due to the harsh weather conditions delaying the ground thaw.

The second crew will aid in ensuring excavation and restoration works are completed or minimized within the busier sections of the downtown core by mid June, or prior to the core tourist season.

Establishments or residences that may be directly affected by the works or closures will continue to be contacted 48 to 72 hours in advance to ensure scheduled deliveries, extraordinary circumstance and requirements are not impeded.

For additional information or updates check the City of Nelson website at or call Nelson Hydro administration at 352-8240.
