MONCTON, N.B. – Professional drivers who have had to manoeuvre around metro potholes and bumps will have their frustrations smoothed before the end of this construction season.
One of the biggest undertakings began a couple of days ago with the stripping of West Main Street. The road was due for a complete reconstruction, but the funds available only allowed for resurfacing — still a big improvement over the previous condition. West Main Street resurfacing should be finished by the end of September.
The planned roadwork schedule will see Shediac Road paved by the end of next week, Wheeler Boulevard resurfaced by the middle of next week and Dominion and High Streets reconstructed by Sept. 28 with the cleanup running into October.
At the same time in Riverview, reconstruction projects include work on Pitt Street and parts of Coverdale Road, Sussex Avenue and Whitepine Road. All projects have been in the works for five to six weeks and are due for completion in the next two weeks.
In Dieppe, Cousteau Street and a portion of Acadie Avenue are being resurfaced and should be finished in the next 10 days or so. Work on Amirault Street, including storm sewers, sidewalks and ditches will continue until the end of October.
