Staff from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) contacted the Sounder on May 31 to say the work scheduled to rehabilitate a section of Taylor Bay Road will begin on Monday, June 5.

According to MOTI staff, the project will involve removing and rebuilding the road base around the corner of North Road and Taylor Bay Road, replacing the culvert under Taylor Bay Road, and placing rip-rap to protect against erosion.

Some widening will be created through the road base repair that will accommodate pedestrians and cyclists.

When this maintenance work is completed, this section of the road will be repaved and lines will be repainted.

The project is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.

MOTI staff said that during construction, crews will make every effort to ensure traffic delays related to construction, including impacts to ferry lineups, are kept to a minimum. 

Some single lane alternating will be required and drivers are reminded to obey traffic control personnel and construction speed limits, and to watch for workers.  

Residents and travellers will be made aware of construction and temporary traffic pattern changes via roadside message boards.
