Lucas Holtzman digs out a ditch for the drainage pipes under the new sidewalk on Highway 16

Sidewalk unfinished until next spring

LB paving, contracted by MInistry of Transportation, started work on the drainage system for the new Highway 16 sidewalk in Houston.

LB paving was contracted by the Ministry of Transportation to build a sidewalk on Highway 16 from Benson Avenue to Mountain View Drive.

This week they finished putting in a new curb and drainage system, with concrete catch basins and pipes that will take water drainage to the Bulkley River, said Scott Atchison, civil superintendent of Canyon Contractors, part of LB paving.

But because of the late start and early winter weather, it’s too cold to pour concrete and the project will not be finished until next spring, said Atchison.
