Road construction goes out to tender

Cache Creek's latest road reconstruction project, Maclean Crescent, goes out to bid this week - but will it come back in time?

Cache Creek Council gave staff the go ahead to call for the Maclean Crescent road reconstruction bids at Monday night’s Council meeting.

“Time is definitely of the essence,” McElhanney Consulting’s Derrick Fabbro told Council at the Aug. 18 meeting as he displayed the final plans.

Although winter seems like a long ways off,  the bid process will take weeks and paving can’t be done once the weather cools off.

Council agreed with Fabbro to shorten the contract from 12 to eight weeks and to lengthen the work days, but they were less than pleased when he told them they might have to leave the road in a gravelled condition until it could be finished in the Spring. An alternate to that was to tender the job now and start it in the Spring.

“We want to try and get it done this year but not at all costs,” said Coun. Wyatt McMurray.
