Road work announced for Humber Valley District

Tom Rideout, Minister of Transportation and Works, and Kathy Goudie, MHA, today announced road work for the District of Humber Valley under the 2004 Provincial Roads Program. The work in Humber Valley is valued at $1.1 million.

This year’s program provides funding for upgrading and improving the provincial highway network, including resurfacing of major trunk roads, community access roads and local roads, routine maintenance on the Trans Canada Highway and rehabilitation and replacement of bridges and culverts.

"This year, thanks to the $7 million increase in our provincial roads program, this department is able to improve on the existing infrastructure throughout the province and in districts like Humber Valley," said Minister Rideout.

Projects planned for the district include:

  • replacement of the deck on Birchy Narrows Bridge, on the Trans Canada Highway;
  • recapping a section of Route 431;
  • repairs to Route 421 at Beaches;
  • rehabilitation of Main Brook Bridge on the Trans Canada Highway.

MHA Goudie said: "The work planned for the district will go along way to improving not only the driving experience for motorist in the district but visitors as well. I am delighted that government would make this investment in the district. This road work is particularly targeting priority projects and I look forward to further repairs and upgrades in the district under the 2005-06 program."
