Funding surplus pumped back into Craigflower Road

When municipal and provincial politicians gathered along Craigflower Road in Esquimalt on Friday, their celebration was twice as nice for the township.

They marked the June 28 completion of a $5-million overhaul of Craigflower Road between Admirals and Garthland roads, which includes traffic-calming features, bike lanes and new sidewalks, among other components.

And because the project, funded with federal gas tax dollars, came in under budget due to favourable bidding conditions, Esquimalt can put the $1-million surplus towards unfinished work on Craigflower Road, between Garthland Road and Arm Street. Work will likely begin next year on the storm water system, sidewalks and the installation of  more bus shelters, said Jeff Miller, Esquimalt's director of engineering and public works.
