District plans to spend $3.4 million on roads over next five years

The District of Sooke will launch its five-year road improvement program this spring.

District council awarded Island Asphalt Company a $453,790 contract to begin work.

Helgesen Road, Cedar Ridge Drive, Christian Drive, Rojean Drive, and Eakin Road are among the first roadways to be repaired or reconstructed.

The work is expected to take up to three weeks and be completed by the end of September. No road closures are planned.

Last summer, the district hired a consultant to do a complete survey of the Sooke road network. It came up with the five-year plan, which was approved by council.

The plan calls for $3.4 million in spending over the next five years. The first four years will see $700,000 each year, with the final year set at $600,000.
