by Keith Corcoran

The Chester area is getting a large chunk of the planned asphalt in a series of new road work announced by the province's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR).

Fourteen re-paving jobs aimed at streets in or near the village are earmarked for work expected to finish by the end of November.

Regent Street, Tremont Road, Union Street, Birch Street, Chandler Road, Nauss Point Road, Prince Street, Chester Shore Road, Cedar Street, Main Street, Beech Street, Pine Street, Maple Street, and Duke Street are identified by the province for new blacktop.

NSTIR advises motorists to expect to see alternating lane closures as the work takes place from sunrise to sunset.

A number of other Lunenburg County projects identified by NSTIR have similar timelines and scope.

In Pine Grove, four asphalt projects were highlighted. Dawson Heights, Lohnes Drive, Charlie Lane, and Harold Whynot Road are slated for new surfacing.

Three re-paving projects were identified for Hebbville: The William Hebb Road, Jubilee Road (between Highway 3 and the Bridgewater town line), and Bell Avenue are the subject of upgrades.

Three more asphalt jobs are taking place in Wileville. Those are slated for Levi Hebb Road, Pearl Street (between Highway 325 and the Bridgewater town line), along with the Darius Wile Road.

Two paving projects are identified for Chester Basin: The Frank Swinamer Road is getting new asphalt between North Street and Highway 3, while the Lawrence Hatt Road is also getting resurfacing.

Conquerall Bank will see work completed to Cove Road (between Conquerall Road and Highway 331) and Hillside Drive (between Bridgewater's town line and the end of the road).

A pair of projects are earmarked for New Germany (Fire Hall Road and Delong Lane)

The communities of Cookville (MacCulloch Road), Lower Branch (Gail Avenue), Pleasantville (River Lane), West LaHave (Pernette Drive), and Riverport (section of Highway 332) are also in line for road work.
