Update on Bedford/Salmon Lake Road Culverts

Mark Segsworth, Public Works Manager at the Township, recently provided me with the following update on the status of the Bedford and Salmon Lake Road culverts:

Bedford Road Culvert
The intention is to reline the culvert under Bedford Road commencing after July 1. This project has already been tendered and awarded.  The relining of the culvert should take about two weeks. We will be informed when the Township gets the construction schedule from the contractor.

Salmon Lake Road Culvert
Design is being finalized and tender in May at the latest. It is our intention to have the successful contractor mobilize towards the end of August with construction commencing after Labour Day.
