Paving work done

A PENTICTON company has finished nearly $9 million worth of paving and other work north and west of Terrace, in Terrace and in Thornhill.

A PENTICTON company has finished nearly $9 million worth of paving and other work north and west of Terrace, in Terrace and in Thornhill.

Involved was pulverizing and paving the section of Hwy113 from Halliwell Ave. to Deep Creek and patching lengthy sections on Hwy16 west of Terrace between the Tyhee Overhead and the Khyex River Bridge and from the Kasiks River Bridge to the CN Rail level crossing.

Peter Brothers of Penticton began its $8.7 million contract in late May. In Thornhill, approximately 11km of new surfacing was put on 19 roads.

The Hwy113 work was done using a technique called pulverize and pave. A machine grinds down nearly a foot, creating a new bed for a new layer of asphalt.

Residents using that road will also notice a difference just before the turnoff to Halliwell.

A perennial slump in the roadbed on the southbound lane has been repaired by digging out that section and putting in a proper foundation, says highways official Don Ramsay.

“You ask yourself if it is worth it year after year to repair it or if you should spend $100,000 to actually fix it,” he said of the slump. “In this case we decided to spend the money to fix it.”
