It must be summer!!! - more paving is scheduled for a busy stretch of highway in the greater Saint John area. The Transportation Department plans to repave almost four kilometers of the westbound lanes along Highway One between the Ashburn Lake Road and the Harbor Bridge - the contract is worth 1.2-million dollars. Meantime -- District Transportation Engineer Allan Kerr says there has been some very preliminary discussion about adding a third lane to a busy stretch of the MacKay Highway -- he says if traffic counts don't justify the addition -- they soon will. Ken Valley councils have expressed concern about the growing volume of traffic in the area which is leading to an increasing number of accidents.
