Paving in Masset, Old Massett means delays

  • Aug. 13, 2007 9:00 a.m.

Islanders can expect minor traffic delays in Masset and Old Massett this month as the main road through the two towns is repaved. The repaving started at the end of July and senior project manager George Lomas said it is scheduled to be finished by Sept. 2. The Ministry of Transportation and Highways awarded the almost $1.8-million contract to Adventure Paving of Prince Rupert. The new paving will cover a total of 5.6 km, starting at the turnoff to the bridge, continuing along Delkatla and Harrison Avenues, and on through Raven Avenue in Old Massett, all the way to the loop at the end, Mr. Lomas said. The work will also include redoing the existing traffic islands, 174 metres of new curbs and gutters, 362 square metres of replacement sidewalk and 253 square metres of new sidewalk. The new concrete sidewalks, which are being paid for by the village of Masset, are nice and wide, Mr. Lomas said. “You can get two baby carriages by each other without falling off,” he said.
