Milling and paving to begin on Victoria Street in Vanderhoof

Work to be completed by Lafarge Canada Inc.

Asphalt milling and paving will begin Friday along Victoria Street, said the District of Vanderhoof.

Lafarge Canada Inc. from Prince George is anticipated to begin milling operations June 4, which will take about half a day to complete.

The milling will be followed by asphalt paving operations on Wednesday, June 9, and should take approximately two days to finalize according to the road construction and maintenance company.

Both operations are weather dependent.

Council waived the district’s purchasing tender policy and authorized the direct award of the district’s 2021 capital paving contract to Lafarge Canada at a March 22 regular council meeting.

Lafarge Canada was awarded the district’s paving contract last year.

Early winter weather conditions delayed the completion of several 2020 capital projects including the Riverside Park multi-use trail, Stewart Street curb line and Vanderhoof Airport apron and taxiways.

The district’s operations superintendent noted the company would honor the same pricing quoted for 2020 in 2021 which would ensure cost certainty for the district.
