The City of Rossland has awarded the contract for the Columbia Avenue infrastructure project to Copcan Contracting Ltd.

The City of Rossland has awarded the contract for the Columbia Avenue infrastructure project to Copcan Contracting Ltd.

Copcan workers were already at work Friday in downtown Rossland, marking and surveying roadways and cutting sidewalks.

At Monday’s meeting, the mayor announced that they had done away with the issue that has been the most contentious – the parallel parking.

While there was no discussion on the subject, the mayor did make a quick statement for those in the gallery:

“By council resolution, we have asked staff to remove parallel parking and make it angle parking, as it is now,” Granstrom said. “Further, there are some deletions to the tune of $424,000 that have been negotiated with the contractor.”

The city is put up a construction schedule here.
