Cranbrook, BC (September 26, 2016) – With the heaviest of the summer use behind us, Public Works crews will begin replacing the brick paving work around the bandstand in Rotary Park starting Tuesday.
Since their installation, there have been bricks breaking creating holes and overall heaves created by the freeze/thaw cycle causing tripping hazards. Crews will remove all the brick work Tuesday and will replace them with a poured concrete surface, which means there will be no public access or use of the bandstand at least for the next couple of weeks.
Once the bricks are removed and the surface prepared, contractors will begin pouring the new concrete surface on Thursday or Friday, depending on the weather.
The public is asked to please obey and follow any barricades or signage in place around the bandstand while the work is being conducted.
Bricks being removed from the site will be left next to the City’s Public Works compound on Cobham Avenue. The public is welcome to come and take bricks for their own use, beginning late in the day Tuesday.
