Highway repaving is underway and drivers can expect up to 20 minute intermittent delays, Monday through Saturday, when travelling between Port and Masset.The Ministry of Transportation said approximately 10 percent of the paving had been completed as of May 9 (Friday), working south from Masset towards Port.The project, which is expected to cost almost $6 million, should be completed on or before July 5, according to the ministry.Adventure Paving of Prince Rupert, a division of YCS Holdings Ltd, will be levelling and paving the 43.7 km stretch of highway as well as Beitush Road in Tlell.This section of road was last paved in the late 1980s and is the only one on the islands that hasn’t been repaved recently.This paving project has been on a ministry waiting list for several years. In 2007, former Skeena District Operations Manager Don Ramsay brought a regional transportation advisory committee to Haida Gwaii.The ministry asks drivers to slow down and obey traffic control personnel while traveling through the work site.
