Ministry announces paving projects

Road resurfacing on sections of Highway 3 to begin in May

  • Apr. 30, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Highway 3 road resurfacing will begin this month and is scheduled to be completed by late September, a media release from the Liberal government reported on April 30. The repaving will begin 21 kilometres east of Highway 5A junction in Princeton and continue east for 9.92 kilometres ending at Stirling Bridge.  Work begins again 13 kilometres east of the Highway 3A Junction in Keremeos and continues east for 12 kilometres ending just before Nighthawk Road.

The road resurfacing contract is worth a total of $2.3 million and was awarded to Peter’s Bros Construction Ltd., of Penticton.


The contract involves the use of the Hot-in-Place asphalt recycling method, which has the benefit of being faster than traditional paving methods, saves resources, and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.
