Road building season in jeopardy: Clarke
SYDNEY, NS - Residents in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality are seeing road work underway on smaller side streets while major work on main roads has yet to be started.
CBRM is seeking to invest $9 million in cost shared funding on heavy traffic roads. The projects are to be equally cost shared, at one-third each, between the municipality, federal government and provincial government. The funding is administered by the province and has not yet been approved.
Mayor Cecil Clarke says this delay is putting the 2014 road construction season in jeopardy.
