Letters: Road work appreciated

Sooke resident appreciates the upgrades to Otter Point Road

I would like to thank the District of Sooke for the wonderful job they did on Otter Point Road. The new pavement is nice and wide with the white line on the side so people can walk and ride their bikers and horses instead of having to dodge the traffic on the pavement. This road has not been changed since I took my son to Boy Scout Camp in the early 1970s.

Nice to see you straightened some of the corners and cut those big trees that were next to the pavement, and cut the brush so people can see when they try to drive their vehicles out of their driveways.

The ditches have also been done nicely. Now that it has stopped at the border, maybe the CRD can finish the rest up to their office and the industrial area, because of them we have a lot of traffic. There is also several businesses like soil and sawmills and a towing business and a lot of new houses. A job well done.

p.s. maybe the waterlines also at the same time.
