Winter patch paving project in Vankleek Hill
Traffic through the village centre of Vankleek Hill was a bit slower than usual on Thursday.
A paving crew from Cornwall Gravel (see photo) worked on hot-patching a few spots in the pavement around the intersection of Route 43 and Main Street. An OPP officer was stationed at the intersection to assist with any traffic direction issues.
Public Works Superintendent James McMahon explained the patch work deals with any weak spots in the temporary pavement laid down last year as part of the first phase of the rehabilitation project for the section of Route 34 and High Street in the village core. Work on the second phase of the project is expected to begin later this spring.
Cornwall Gravel, the contractor hired for the project, is doing the paving patch work at no extra cost to the township and should be finished by the end of the week.
