Coun. Rick Kasper with Sooke resident Nikole Hennessy, with her sons Cashton and Zachary, try out the new paved shoulder upgrade along Grant Road. “It’s awesome,” Hennessy said. “It was rough and slanted before and it was hard to keep the stroller from tipping. Now it’s nice and flat.” The Grant Road shoulder widening project is one of the major sidewalk improvement projects the District of Sooke plans to undertake this year. Other work is set for intersection of Church and Throup roads, and a stretch of Highway 14 between Otter Point Road and the Hope Centre.
