Drivers between Springhill and Oxford will soon have a smoother ride because of a paving tender announced by the province today, April 8. The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal has called a tender to repave 5.7 kilometres of Route 321 from the intersection of Wyvern Road at River Philip toward Springhill. “So far this year our department has scheduled more than 200 kilometres of repaving on Nova Scotia roads,” said Murray Scott, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “This is a useful route for drivers in the Oxford and Springhill areas and I’m pleased to see it on this year’s construction schedule.” The project is part of government’s commitment to better roads and infrastructure as outlined in the speech from the throne. The department’s highways division manages more than 23,000 kilometres of roads in Nova Scotia. It maintains 4,100 bridges and operates seven provincial ferries. Staff provide services from district offices in Bridgewater, Bedford, Truro, and Sydney.
