Tar-and-chip contract awarded
Several tar-and-chip roads in the township are slated for a fresh surface treatment this summer, with council deciding Tuesday night the work will be carried out by Duncor Enterprises at a cost of $180,000.
Near Breslau, a fresh layer will be applied to portions of Hopewell Creek Road and Spitzig Road. In Floradale, it’ll be Florapine Road. Also on the list is Kenning Place north of Elmira, and Eldale Road.
Overall, the township has some 44 kilometres of tar-and-chip roads, which receive a new surface treatment on a five- to seven-year cycle.
