Repave of Soda Creek Rd starts tomorrow

Courtesy of the City of Williams Lake:

The City of Williams Lake has taken advantage of an opportunity to re-pave a 1.8 km section of Soda Creek Road from the dump turn-off to just past the railroad tracks.

Green Roads Recycling is in the Williams Lake area undertaking work for the Ministry of Transportation, and can perform paving work for the City at a reduced cost, as they are already on site. With equipment capable of performing large volumes of Hot in Place Recycling (HIPR) work at high speeds, it is a suitable and cost-effective treatment for Soda Creek Road.

"The City is happy to be able to address the necessary repairs to a portion of Soda Creek Road, while realizing significant savings. The Hot in Place Recycling process is appropriate for the level of repair required on Soda Creek Road," says Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb. "Paving this road is a priority from the perspective of safety and long- term responsible management of infrastructure."

The roadwork will commence on the morning of Friday, June 23rd through Saturday, June 24th.

No mention of the cost to taxpayers for this paving event. Perhaps His Worship could enlighten us on the price tag for this UNTENDERED work AND the savings to taxpayers!
