Drivers in the Bible Hill area will soon be travelling on smoother, stronger pavement thanks to a road-paving tender announced by the Department of Transportation and Public Works. The tender is for repaving on nine streets in Bible Hill and Colchester County for a total distance of 6.8 kilometres. The streets are Rhyland Drive, Maple Boulevard, Scenic Drive, and Hillcrest Avenue in Bible Hill, as well as Evergreen Drive, East Prince Street, Spruce Drive, Hill Street, and William Street in Colchester County. “These roads are important to local residents and it’s important that we bring them back to top shape,” said Angus MacIsaac, Minister of Transportation and Public Works. “The province is investing $177-million in road paving this year.” The Department of Transportation and Public Works’ highways division manages more than 23,000 kilometres of roads in Nova Scotia. It maintains 4,100 bridges and operates seven provincial ferries. Staff provide services from district offices in Bridgewater, Bedford, Truro, and Sydney.
