After a delayed start to the work due to unanticipated downpours, progress is beginning to be made on phase two of the rehabilitation of King Street.
"From Pine to the intersection of Spruce is pretty much ready for sub-base and base. They have already poured concrete, once that dries we'll be finalizing the top base lift, and getting ready for pavement," related City of Estevan Engineer, Kifloum Weldeab.
"The second part is east of Spruce, and that is already dry and ready to go. The subgrade is complete, and it's getting ready for base."
He added that the contractor will receive credit and timeline extension for the rainy days. That said, more moisture at this point in time would still set things back again, and so the workers are hoping the skies hold back for a little while longer.
"The contractor is working very hard to get things done, but sometimes it's just out of control, there's nothing much you can do," stated Weldeab.
He also asked for continued patience from the public motorists, and noted that he has been impressed by what he's seen from people so far.
