Resurfacing East Kootenay roads

Improvements are coming to several East Kootenay roads. The provincial government has awarded a $4.7 million contract to Interoute Construction Ltd. to resurface a number of streets.

The project will include resurfacing to: Two km along Jaffray Baynes Lake Road, 3.8 km along Kikomun Newgate Road, 5.4 km along Wardner-Fort Steele Road, 10.9 km on Highway 3/93 from Haha Creek Road to Wardner Bridge, and 2.4 km on Highway 95A from Highway 3 to Echo Field Road.

“These road repairs and resurfacing will result in a smoother driving surface and a higher level of safety,” said Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett. “This work will make travelling on this section safer and more reliable for users, and will improve the conditions for movement of goods and services.”

The project will see upgrades to almost 25 km of road, including important side roads that will benefit local area traffic. Work is scheduled to begin this summer and finish by September 2014.
