Municipality planning for summer road work

 | May 6, 2012

The Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality will meet with Argo Road Maintenance and the Ministry of Transportation to develop a summer repair and maintenance plan for roads at Sun Peaks.

“If any residents know of any significant issues with the roads or drainage on the roads, (for example) if there’s big pooling, they should report it to the municipality,” says Byron Johnson, chief administrative officer for the municipality. “We’ll take a look at some of those areas and make sure we get everything on the work plan for Argo.”

Argo has been patch repairing potholes in the community this spring, but those have been short-term remedies to improve driving while conditions are still not optimal for permanent repairs.

“Unfortunately when you just use the cold mix repairs during the colder season, it’s very temporary,” states Johnson. “But (Argo will) come in and do more permanent hot repairs over the summer.”

The municipality will report the biggest problem areas to Argo, to be completed during the summer months.
