Four West Lincoln roads are set to be repaired later this year after council approved the tender for road repairs across the township.
At a council meeting on Monday, April 25, councillors ratified a bylaw giving the contract for the project to Walkers Construction Limited, which submitted the lowest quote, at $876,971 plus tax. Council also set aside $87,594.31 as a contingency allowance, meaning a total cost of $980,000.
In February 2022, $1,320,000 was allocated for the 2022 road rehabilitation project as part of the 2022 capital budget. The road repairs were identified as part of a 2019 road needs study.
The following roads sections were earmarked for repair:
South Grimsby Road 18, from Regional Road 20 to Young Street, costing $201,759.57. Repairs will include restoring road edges and a single surface treatment over the entire road.
Abingdon Road, from Concession 5 to Sixteen Road, costing $225,243.29. Some of the road’s edges are in a poor state, leading to a narrower road surface. Like South Grimsby Road, repairs will include restoring the edges and a single surface treatment.
Concession 4 Road, from Silverdale Road to Hodgkins Road, costing $193,366.54. The condition of this road is similar to Abingdon Road and will require the same repairs.
South Chippawa Road, from Regional Road 2 (Caistorville Rd) to Abingdon Road, costing $193,366.54. The road edges are in a poor state, the road surface has also deteriorated and could cause slick conditions in hotter temperatures. The work required is similar to the other roads.
