AYLESFORD, N.S. - A substantial culvert replacement project impacting a stretch of Highway 101 near the Aylesford exit is expected to wrap up in mid-December.
“We are replacing a deteriorating steel culvert that had caused some localized soil erosion and depression to the highway above,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal spokesperson Marla MacInnis.
“Temporary repairs had been completed in the past; however, construction crews are now replacing the culvert with a new, more advanced one.”
Traffic has been reduced to one lane to allow for the repair work required to put a new culvert in place.
“Work on site is scheduled to be complete in mid-December and we will reopen both lanes of traffic at that time,” said MacInnis.
“Motorists are encouraged to continue using the highway as intended, and to plan for minor delays in their daily commute.”
It is anticipated the project will cost roughly $1.45 million, she said.
