MANNING PARK—A section of Highway 3 in Manning Park, B.C. will be resurfaced with hot-in-place paving.
Peter’s Bros. Construction of Penticton, B.C. was awarded the $2.8 million contract for the work, which is expected to begin in May and finish before the end of summer 2018.
About 25 kilometres of the highway between Sumallo Grove and Allison Pass will be resurfaced with the recycled asphalt.
“Hot-in-place paving is a greener way to resurface our highways as it reuses and recycles the asphalt, and it also reduces emissions,” said Claire Trevena, minister of transportation and infrastructure.
Hot-in-place also aims to extend the life of the pavement by rehabilitating the top layer and lasts an average of eight to 12 years, according to the province.
