A 10.5-kilometre stretch of Westsyde Road north of Kamloops will be resurfaced this summer, with completion slated for the end of September.
The $1.5-million contract was awarded to Dawson Construction and will see the work done between the northern boundary of Kamloops and the north end of Black Pines where the asphalt is more than 20-years-old.
The tender required the winning contractor to provide work on the shoulders, site cleanup and restoration as well as all the road work and traffic control.
The stretch of two-lane road is used as an industrial haul route and is the only connection to the city for the Black Pines community and the Whispering Pines Indian Band.
