Sidney roundabout about to get more expensive

The Town of Sidney’s $1.4 million roundabout project at Ocean Avenue and Fifth Street is now $257,000 more expensive

The Town of Sidney’s $1.4 million roundabout project at Ocean Avenue and Fifth Street is now $257,000 more expensive.

On Oct. 9 council approved the additional spending to pay for the removal of NAV Canada non-directional beacon infrastructure from the parcel of federal land the town is buying. The transfer of that land is expected by the end of the year, with contraction expected by late February, 2013.

Another $160,000 was approved to cover higher construction costs to cover poor below-ground conditions, storm drains and anticipated weather challenges.

The town has spent $535,000 of the project budget to date. The extra money will be taken from the town’s gas tax revenues ($350,000 annually).
