Taxpayers worried they might be footing the bill for repairs on the recently expanded Sea to Sky highway are off the hook.
The work on a retaining wall near the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal is covered by the private contractor Peter Kiewit and Sons.
Transportation Minister Todd Stone is also offering assurances the section of Highway 99, expanded at a cost of 600 million dollars in the years leading up to the 2010 Olympics, is safe.
Residents of the nearby Pasco Road also expressed concerns about traffic delays during the five months it takes to ensure the wall remains stable.
The work was slated to start April 27th, but it’s been delayed until further consultation can be done.
The new plan will see the road closed for only two hours per day instead of eight.
