As the Director of the Capital & Infrastructure Team, I would like to take this opportunity to give my great appreciation to my Team for their hard work and dedication in realizing the paving project.
The completion of Phase 1, the paving of nine roads, is the kick off for our three year paving initiative program within the community. Our goal is to have all Listuguj roads paved by 2020.
The following roads were chosen as Phase 1 for the infrastructure plan, and as the season went forward the Team started the preparation for the drainage on the remaining streets.
- Church Crescent
- Old Mill Road
- Martin Lane
- Nation Lane
- Dedam Part 1
- Isaac Part 2
Since our initial meeting with our funder in late spring, the Team has been striving to put the first asphalt layer in place before snowfall. To achieve this, funding had to be put in place, infrastructure had to be prepared, design and finally, awarding the contract via public tender. What you currently see is the base layer for these roads and the final finished layer will be placed in the spring when weather permits.
Phase 2 paving is planned to start in summer 2019. We will be confirming the streets that will be paved during phase 2 by spring, once the planning is complete.
Finally, we encourage community members to please reach out should they have any questions or concerns about the paving projects. Please address them to Mr. Charles Basque/Civil Engineer Technician at his email Charles.Basque@listuguj.ca.
We have many more success stories that we will be sharing with you periodically.
This is just one of many to come.
