Ucluelet reveals paving plan

The wheels on your ride will soon go round and round a little smoother as Ucluelet’s municipal council has laid out its paving plan for 2014.

The district has $25,000 to play with in terms of paving projects this year and council allocated over half of this money during last week’s regular meeting.

The council-endorsed work will consist of widening corners at Victoria and Marine and at Alder and Eber, leveling sections along Helen at the corners of Birch and Main, upgrading an apron section on Peninsula and a path section on Norah and adding a curb to the corner of Peninsula and Marine.

The work carries an estimated cost of about $14,500. If this estimate rings true, roughly $10,000 will be left in the district’s $25,000 paving budget for 2014 and district

staff plans on using the remaining funds to tackle Bay Street, according to district CAO Andrew Yeates. “We have major work to do on Bay Street and we don’t have enough money at this point to do all of it so depending on how things shape upas the year goes on we’ll try and do that, if not we’ll save it for 2015,” he said.
