Council approves contract for Victoria Road reconstruction

Revelstoke council approves $641,119.76 contract for reconstruction of Victoria Road from Vernon Avenue to Eight Street.

A major reconstruction project of a section of Victoria Road will be conducted by the same company that performed the Grizzly Plaza extension in 2009.

Mounce Construction from Salmon Arm won the contract with a low bid of $641,119.76. It beat out three other companies for the job, none of which are local.

The project will see Victoria Road be re-built from Eighth Street to Vernon Avenue. The city budgeted $700,000 for the project and the bid by Mounce Construction was the only one to come in at under that amount.
