Notice: Update on Chip Seal and Road Upgrade

Due to the cancellation of the barge, we regret to inform you that we will not be able to complete the chip seal work this season.

However, we are pleased to announce that the crush is completed for the upgrading of Mackenzie Drive, which has degraded over the past three years due to unavoidable delays in chip seal completion.

The planned work on Mackenzie Drive will include:

*Ditching (mulching, and ditch regrade)- happening now!

*Culvert replacement

*Actual road upgrade and dust suppression

*Surveying to begin within the next few days

It is crucial that no further damage be done to the geotextile or the thin layer of gravel presently left over the geotextile.

We are currently awaiting confirmation from our contractor on firm timelines for road upgrades and will keep you informed of timelines and project progress.

Please drive to conditions.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
