Some highway lines to be repainted

Highway lines between Skidegate and Queen Charlotte will be repainted in early September.Queen Charlotte administrator Peter Weeber told council last week that the Ministry of Transportation came to do a site visit at the end of July.”They (the ministry) had done an assessment on the roads based on the line discussion,” said Mr. Weeber. “What they’ve determined is they’re going to do some painting. There is an area between Skidegate and here where there are no lines at all.”Mr. Weeber said that the section between Skidegate and Charlotte will get done between Sept. 7 and Sept. 9 and, due to financial concerns, the Ministry will come back next year to do the rest of the islands.”They did do a tour of the area to see what the worst was,” said Mr. Weeber, “and in fact our area was the worst.”
