First phase of Causeway work nears completion

Construction work on the Noden Causeway continues to move according to schedule, and it’s currently expected to be fully open to traffic (and the speed reduction of 50 km/h removed) by mid-October.

MTO regional director Larry Lambert said Friday the first phase of the five year project—work on the 138-metre east low level portion—is 60 percent complete but moving along quickly.

Lengthy putt

Jim Fowler watched his putt roll towards the hole as playing partner Al Holt prepared to pull out the flag during the club championship Sunday at Kitchen Creek. Fowler shot a 105 (80 with handicap) while Holt shot an 87 (71) in the seniors’ division.

Girls having fun

Aimee McEvoy, left, Tessa Debruyne, Sheree Hinz, and Cheryl Luptak started a massage train at the Beautiful Unique Girls “beach party” held at St. Mary’s Church here Saturday night. The girls spent the evening talking and enjoying music while also being treated to a concert, smoothies, pizza, and manicures.

End in sight

Crews from Pioneer Construction began paving Central Avenue yesterday, and were expected to have the first lift of asphalt down by the end of today. The second, or top, lift of asphalt is expected to be done sometime next week. As well, the first phase of paving done last year on part of Central Avenue and the 100 blocks of Scott Street and Church Street has to be ground up and repaved.
