Resurfacing on Highway 19 to get underway
Twenty-three kilometres of Highway 19 will be resurfaced using hot-in-place recycle paving to keep the route in top condition for people travelling on the Inland Island Highway between Parksville and Courtenay.
Starting on Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018, the travel (or slow) lanes in both directions between Chef Creek Bridge (approximately 15 kilometres south of the Buckley Bay interchange) and McLeod Road will be resurfaced.
The project, which is expected to be completed by mid-October, addresses bumpy conditions, uneven patches and pot holes along the stretch of road, making for safer and smoother driving.
ARC Asphalt Recycling Inc. of Kamloops was awarded a $2.5-million contract for the work.
During construction, drivers are reminded to slow down, obey traffic-control personnel, and to check DriveBC.ca for the most up-to-date highway information.
• Hot-in-place recycle paving produces up to 50% fewer emissions than conventional paving, as it reuses and recycles the existing asphalt material right on the project site.
• It helps extend the life of the surface by rehabilitating the top layer of pavement and lasts an average of eight to 12 years.
• This made-in-British Columbia technology has been used since 1986.
