Some additional pavement rehabilitation is anticipated to take place in Williams Lake this fall.
“Because of the wildfires we managed to not get some projects done so what we’re going to do is reallocate that to funds where we know we need to put spending into the infrastructure, predominantly paving,” says Councillor Scott Nelson.
“Those three key areas are going to be Westridge Drive, Woodland Drive, and of course parts of Fox Mountain.”
The funds to rehabilitate Westridge Drive, Woodland Drive, and Fox Mountain Road through Green Roads Recycling using hot in place asphalt amounts to $567,000 a price which Nelson saves the City hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Nelson says that the different projects all on the capital side in which the funds were allocated from will be picked up again in 2018.
The recommendation to authorize the increase in the 2017 Road Program to include the roads upon approval of a contract within the budget was unanimously approved by Council Tuesday evening.
