TUSKET – Argyle MLA Chris d’Entremont is pleased that an important transportation infrastructure project has begun in Argyle.
“Preliminary milling work began today and paving is slated to start soon on a treacherous section of Highway 103 between Belleville and Argyle Head,” said d’Entremont. “Hydroplaning was the major concern with this section of Highway 103 and this work will go a long way in reducing accidents for motorists.”
The work should take approximately two weeks to complete.
“Another project that residents may have noticed some movement on this week affects Indian Sluice Bridge,” said d’Entremont. “Hydrography work on and around the bridge was scheduled to begin this week in preparation for the replacement of the current structure. I would like to thank Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister, Bill Estabrooks, for not straying too far from the timeline that was set for this project by the previous government.”
Further geotechnical work will occur on the Indian Sluice Bridge later this fall.
