Prince George, B.C. -A company from Prince George has been awarded the contract to start road work to the Site C dam project.
A.L. Sims and Sons Ltd from Prince George has been awarded the $7.9 million dollar contract that will see the following work done:
- Upgrading and paving 1.6 kilometres of 240 Road.
- Upgrading and paving 900 meters of 269 Road.
- Widening, paving and partially realigning 5.6 kilometres of Old Fort Road.
- Installing street lights at various intersections along Old Fort Road and 240 Road.
These roads serve both the community and provide access to the Site C project. The road work and paving will result in a smoother riding surface, improved safety and dust control. Wider shoulders will make the roads safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. Street lights will enhance safety through improved visibility.
This is the first contract that the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has awarded in association with BC Hydro as part of the Site C project.
Work is expected to start this summer and be completed in September 2016.
