Highway 520 Improvements

When travelling Highway 520 you will notice it is a much smotther ride compared to previous years. In 2009 a 6km section of this highway received a fair amount of constructive maintenance including frost dig-outs, ditching, etc.

Due to the cold temperatures and wet conditions it is very difficult to get a good finished product when surface treating. For this reason the MTO has had to delay the surface treatment and include it in next years' contract.

The funds that were allocated for the surface treatment were used to place additional Granular A creating a stronger platform.

There will be more work required to bring this section of highway to alevel of standard that we are hoping for, however it is great to see the Ministry of Transportation take our needs into consideration when planning their present and future construction projects.
