Public works management and consultant True Engineering recommending low bid of $749,625.00 contract to do road reconstruction on a Earle Crescent and two addition small streets – Church and Veterans Avenues. Major challenge is the raised sidewalk on a portion of Earle Crescent – Veterans to Kootenay – in one of the oldest areas of the village.
Council had requested a bump out for safety at Hillside and Earle Crescent but that is unlikely to go ahead as it provides a major design challenge for Engineers and the contractor.
Because of the funds involved there will be a delay in the “fix” to Airport Street where parts of road have deteriorated and showing a separation in the pavement. Work will likely start and finish prior to November.
