PORT HARDY — Upland Excavating Ltd., of Campbell River, was awarded the $1.5-million contract to rebuild the Dick Booth Culvert on Holberg Rd., west of Port Hardy, that was washed out during flooding about a year ago.

The new culvert will be larger than the original and additional improvements will provide the public with a permanent road crossing that will prevent future washouts.

“Holberg Road provides an important link to the northern tip of Vancouver Island and services local communities, said Blair Lekstrom, minister of Transportation and Infrastructure.

“This contract will have a great economic spinoff and help create and maintain jobs for families in this region.”
