Wet Weather Slows Towns Paving Plans
Wet weather in town has been hindering progress for paving this spring but work on curbs and gutters is soon expected to beginprobably in early July.
Chief administrative officer of the Town of Provost, Terry Hurlbut says that several streets should soon be paved but he added that there is still no contractor for the Main Street project that includes putting in new water services. It is not known when that project will go ahead.
The street paving will cost approximately $1.1 million not counting the Main Street project. The federal and provincial governments will put up $300,000 and the town will pay the balance to Central City Paving of Red Deer for the job.
Planned for paving this summer are the following streets;
51 Street between 50 and 51 Ave.;
50 Street between 52 and 54 Ave.;
49 Street between 50 and 51 Ave.;
47 Street between 51 and 52 Ave. and 53 and 54 Ave.;
in front of Provost Public School;
from 53 Ave. down to a new trailer park (40 St.);
and; 44E St., in an area between the Horizon Motel and Restaurant and the Provincial Building.
