Road 5-Year Plan

Aside Posted on Updated on

NS Road Plan

The government released it’s list of planned road work across the province.  There are a few things benefitting Argyle in it, and a few things for Barrington too.

For 2013 – 2014 in Yarmouth County, repaving on the 203, 7.2 kms from the Cannan Road to the North Kempt Road.  For 2014-15 6.5 kms Trunk 3 from Willets Road to the County Line, East Pubnico.  The Indian Sluice Bridge is also noted as it is a multi-year project.

In Barrington, looks like a little bit of chip seal, 1 km on Factory Hill Road, Barrington, 1.27 kms Pope’s Road, Upper Wood’s Harbour  and 0.7 kms on West Bear Point Road.

All in all, not a lot to see here for us, but have a look on page 8, where you can see a comment from Bridge Replacement Chairman Earl Muise, saying;

Many of us have been working for decades to have our very old bridge replaced. The new two-lane bridge will be a milestone in our community’s history and development.”
