Pla­cen­tia area road up­grades set for Septem­ber

The Compass - - NEWS - editor@CBN­com­pass.ca

Work should start next month to fix up roads lead­ing to Ar­gen­tia, Fox Har­bour and Ship Har­bour, ac­cord­ing to the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment.

A $1.6 mil­lion ten­der has been awarded to repave 2.8 kilo­me­tres of Route 102, which leads to Fox Har­bour and Ship Har­bour, and to look af­ter as­phalt lev­el­ing for two kilo­me­tres of the Ar­gen­tia Ac­cess Road — also known as Route 100.

In a news re­lease last week, the Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion and Works said Far­rell’s Ex­ca­vat­ing will start that work in Septem­ber.

“The up­grades to Ship Har­bour Road and the Ar­gen­tia Ac­cess Road are welcome in­vest­ments for the res­i­dents of Pla­cen­tia-St. Mary’s,” lo­cal MHA Felix Collins said in the re­lease. “These routes are im­por­tant to our road in­fra­struc­ture and will im­prove driv­ing con­di­tions for res­i­dents, as well as tourists to the re­gion.”

This year, the province al­lo­cated $90 mil­lion to im­prove and main­tain pro­vin­cial roads.
