This is to inform the public that excavation of the new school site has begun and Burseys Excavation and Development Inc. is the contractor responsible for this contract.

Along with site excavation, construction began on May 2nd for the new bridge and road upgrade; and this contract is being completed by Budgell’s Equipment & Rentals. It is estimated that this contract will be completed within 8 weeks (if schedule is maintained).

We ask the general public to respect all safety rules and obey all signage. Your safety is our priority.

Do not park at entrance to the Mcdonald’s site. You are permitted to park in the sand pit area and the area near the bathrooms. This will eliminate unnecessary vehicle congestion at the entrance. A NO PARKING sign will be erected at the entrance.

There is fence erected at the site and no one is permitted beyond that point without prior approval and PPE.

Ryan Steele is the site supervisor - BIRD Construction - and he can be contacted via email ac.dr1462580577ib@el1462580577eets.1462580577nayr1462580577 or call 506-639-0795.

Trail users are asked to proceed with EXTREME CAUTION and be aware of the signage/safety rules.
