Work on the Hall Street project continues this week with the start of Stage 2 with anticipated completion date is August 31st the City of Nelson website said.

“Stage 2 involves the closure of the southern extent of the 100 Block of Hall Street to the mid-point of the intersection at Hall and Front,” City staff said.

“This phase of the work will involve asphalt/concrete removal, installation of storm and sanitary sewer mains, installation of dual catch basins on the north side of the intersection of Hall and Front, and the installation of the shallow utilities. The City said the intersection lights will be out-of-service and vehicular traffic will be a single lane in both directions.

“Please note that access to the retailers in the Gateway Building (Kootenai Moon, Torchlight Brewery and Glass House Optical) will be available via Lakeside Drive during Stage 2,” City staff said.

Customer parking will continue to be available at the corner of Hall and Front Street for pedestrian traffic for these retailers.

Front Street is the major road through Nelson connecting traffic from the west part of the city to the Big Orange Bridge on Highway 3A.

Much of the work to date has been focused on the area adjacent to the Prestige Lakeside Resort including the installation of the new storm water underground infrastructure and the new outfall into the lake, the waterfront plaza and waterfront steps.

The City received a grant of $4,441,000 which will fund 66% of the project. The remaining funds for our normal water, sewer, electrical and roads upgrades come from reserve accounts set aside for these ongoing city-wide infrastructure improvements.
