A stint of cold weather and dusting of snow in mid October helped put the resurfacing of Victoria Street and other roadwork projects behind schedule.
Work on Victoria and Summit Drive was expected to be completed Tuesday but crews were still at it that afternoon.
City capital projects manager Kirsten Meersman said about 20 per cent of the paving stones used to surface the crosswalks on Victoria between First and Fifth Avenue needed replacing, which also slowed that project down.
“We anticipated doing three crosswalks a day but could only do one,” said Meersman, adding new bricks needed to be purchased.
The existing bricks will be used to complete intersection crosswalks and new bricks will pave the mid-block crossings. She said the resurfacing was completed Tuesday. All that remains is resetting the crosswalk bricks.
As for Summit, paving was scheduled to be finished by the end of the day Tuesday, leaving only line painting and cleanup.
Work on the traffic circle at Lorne Street and repairs to Grandview Terrace continue. Meersman said landscaping will be completed at the circle by early November.
Meersman said concrete will be poured on Grandview this week and paving is expected to commence next week.
Completion of the Grandview project was already a month behind schedule because crews had to replace a broken water line.
