Dear Members,

You may notice, starting next week, that trees will be coming down on the median of the original section of the Bear Mountain Parkway.

The City of Langford in partnership with Bear Mountain is undertaking a Bear Mountain Parkway Landscape refurbishment project between Stone Gate and Champions Way. The project includes the installation of artificial turf in the centre median and upgrading the existing irrigation system. The project aims to improve aesthetics and safety, while reducing water consumption and yearly maintenance cost. The project will result in the loss of existing median trees due to their health, impact to infrastructure (cracking curbs) and spacing aesthetics. New median trees will be planted in early 2020 when weather is appropriate.

Construction starts Tuesday November 12th and will last 10 weeks (weather and holiday permitting). For safety of the workers traffic will be reduced to single alternating direction for the duration of the work.

If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Mogensen at 250-391-3795
