Taste of Winter Results in the Deferral of Pavement Rehabilitation

A blast of winter conditions last week has resulted in the repaving of Westridge and Woodland Drive in Williams Lake being put off until next year.

The news was made at Tuesday night’s regular city council meeting.

Mayor Walt Cobb says they’re disappointed, and that they are deferring it to next year’s budget.

“We had a lot of work we planned on doing and we found extra money to do it this year because we got a real deal on the pavement, but with the snow and the rain that’s happened we’ve had to defer to next year.”

The funds deferred amount to approximately $412,000.

“Because we got such a deal because this outfit (Green Roads) was in town there could be some access fees and what not that make it a little bit more expensive than what it was but they’ve told us they’ll give us the per square foot price,” says Cobb. “It will be just getting them here might be the extra cost.”

Director of Development Leah Hartley said in a Council Report although pavement rehabilitation of Soda Creek Road and Fox Mtn Road were completed by October 13, paving was not possible over the weekend due to significant snowfall and rainfall followed by freezing temperatures.

“The quality and durability of asphalt pavement is weather dependent,” she said. “With excessive freezing temperatures, the new layer of asphalt does not bond properly leading to rapid deterioration.”
