Grindrod roads get funding
The Ministry of Transportation has designated funding for improvement projects in Grindrod and rural Enderby.
“Transportation is critical for the economic prosperity of the Shuswap area,” said George Abbott, Shuswap MLA.
Work on Highway 97A starts 2.7 kilometres north of the Shuswap River bridge in Grindrod and continues north for 26 kilometres to the Highway 1 junction.
Work on the Highway 97B project is expected to start in early May.
The ministry has also announced portions of the Enderby-Mabel Lake Road will be resurfaced this year.
This project will go to tender in April, with work scheduled to be done in October.
In Grindrod, the intersection of Highway 97B and Springbend Road will have street lights added to improve pedestrian and motorist safey night.
