Thanks to a tender coming in at almost half the cost of what the city expected, residents will likely see more roads resurfaced this year.
Mayor Deb Higgins said road restoration, which including resurfacing, is one of three main programs for road repair. The city has awarded a $1.4-million tender.
“This is where you will see the road get milled down and then resurfaced,” said Higgins. “The really good news is the tender came in 40 per cent below what we expected and so what we’re doing is we’ll be moving up more streets to be able to utilize the budget and get done a little more if we can.”
