24 kilometres of road rehabilitation and re-surfacing on Cortes Island:
Between May 24 and July 22, 2011 Emcon Services and other road building contractors will be engaged in operations on a variety of roads throughout Cortes Island. This will include shouldering and ditching, reclamation, and surface treatment with chip seal. Residents and visitors will see increased contracting activity, arrival of a wide variety of maintenance equipment, coupled with the arrival of several barges of graded aggregate seal material.
Emcon has worked closely with local residents to minimize disruptions. However, travelrs of the island will experience some delays between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. during days of operation. During this construction, Emcon asks that drivers respect the signage, slow down in construction zones, and obey all traffic control personnel. Updates of road improvement activities will be posted routinely.
