12 Streets

According to this CBC story, there are 12 streets scheduled for resurfacing in 2008. Here’s what they look like on a map (larger map):

The list includes the portion of Prince Street that runs in front of our house. Interestingly, this portion was partially resurfaced in 2007 in advance of the Tour de PEI cycling race. Indeed the CBC reports that we’ll get first crack at resurfacing this year too:

For the most part, streets with the worst rating will be done first. The exception is Prince Street, which gets first crack because the Tour de P.E.I. will run down the street on June 12.

Here’s the stage of the Tour de PEI that runs through downtown Charlottetown by our house. As in 2007, nobody from the City of Charlottetown nor the Tour de PEI has bothered to contact us to tell us that they’ll be closing our street for this purpose.

It probably is the other stretch of Westridge — they just paved the section you have highlighted last year — although with the plow work this year they’ll likely have to repave all of the curbing.

Since making this post, I’ve received confirmation that all affected residents will receive a letter in the mail with details of the Tour de PEI route. Apparently they did this last year as well, we just never received the letter.
