Cache Creek Council is looking for an engineering company to conduct its latest road project: MacLean Crescent will be re-constructed this summer.

Mayor John Ranta says the street was included in the Village’s strategic plan three years ago, along with Sun Valley and Old Cariboo. The Village was unable to obtain an infrastructure grant for the work, so they chose to do the least expensive of the roads. 2012’s estimate for reconstructionof MacLean Cres. was $766,000.

Ranta said the Crescent will be constructed in a manner similar to past reconstructionprojects on MacLean Dr., Quartz Rd., Collins and Stage Rd., with the addition of curb, gutter and a sidewalk on at least one side.

He said they hope to begin the process by the end of March by looking for the engineer. After construction drawings are prepared, affected residents will be invited to a public meeting to look at the plans and ask questions.

A recent $1 Billion infrastructure fund announced by the federal government last week does not include projects for municipal roads.
