Cache Creek road work goes ahead

Maclean Crescent reconstruction project is awarded to Bree Contracting in 100 Mile House.

Reconstruction work on Maclean Crescent will begin in the next few days.

Cache Creek Council selected Bree Contracting out of 100 Mile House as the successful bidder with the lowest price of $435,745.

Council is hoping that the work can be completed before the snow flies this year. The company has agreed to complete the work in eight weeks to the best of their abilities, said the Village’s Administrator Dan Plamondon. There will be no added charges if they have to complete the work next spring.

Their bid is nominally less than consultant’s estimate, he said. Four companies bid on the job and the three lowest bids were within $25,000 of each other. The highest bid, from LE Chapman Construction out of Vernon, was $744,590.

The road will be dug up and repaved, adding a sidewalk, curbs and more street lights.
