Paving to improve safety of Blueberry-Paulson Pass

A portion of Highway 3 through the Blueberry-Paulson Pass will be resurfaced this year, improving the safety of the highway for travellers and commercial vehicles.

Selkirk Paving has been awarded a $2.65-million contract to resurface approximately 11 km of Highway 3, from the Paulson brake check to the Sheep Creek rest area.

This is a continuation of the paving work that began last summer on this section of Highway 3.

As part of the contract, 9.7 km of local side roads will also be hard-surfaced, some for the first time. Side roads to be resurfaced are:

• Bain Road

• Carlson Road

• Eholt Road

• Paulson Detour

• Border Road

• Davidson Road

Work is scheduled to start this spring, with completion anticipated by the end of September.
