Castlegar’s bus riders are going to have to wait at least another month before shelters in the Columbia Avenue construction zone are installed.
City CAO Chris Barlow doesn’t expect installation to happen until the end of March.
The delay is due to a problem on the manufacturing end.
Columbia Avenue redevelopment contractor Marwest is in charge of ordering and installing the shelters.
“The city has evaluated trying to use other options, including using the old ones, but the dimensions don’t fit the new layout,” said Barlow.
The city has also looked at acquiring the shelters from a different source, but could not find a source to provide them any sooner.
Two shelters are slated for installation — one on each side of the street near No Frills.
