New walk on Nicola Avenue from the bridge area of the highway 8 entrance to Merritt and the historic meat market store at the junction of 97c and 5A .

Under the walks new waterlines were laid and pressure tested to 200 psi on a time pressure loss scale. ” 185 psi at the end of the time was within aceptable limits, but it remained at 200 for the test” ( to the corner of Chapman and Nicola at least )

A new waterline under the sidewalk gave an economy to the repave as it saved digging up the exsisting lines under it. No word on the economy of future repairs.

A neighbour says that the meat market building was sold to Koreans as an investment in recent months.
