TRURO – Weather conditions have resulted in an unfinished paving project in Truro.
paving project on hold for elm street
The sidewalk and paving project on Elm Street, between Queen Street and Nova Drive, has been ongoing for a few weeks. However, weather has dictated the paving part of the project will have to wait, said the town’s director of public works, Andrew MacKinnon.
During a Truro town council meeting on Monday, the public works department shared paving could not be completed because there were “not enough consecutive suitable construction days throughout the month to reconstruct the street.”
Instead, the area will undergo some patching and paving will be reconsidered in the next year’s budget.
“We will be in better shape (on that road) than we were last year, even with the patching,” MacKinnon told the Truro Daily News.
Coun. Raymond Tynes said there was one benefit to having an unfinished project.
“I love the speed holes because they slowed traffic down,” he said, adding motorists should beware that potholes could develop along that stretch due to the unfinished work.
