Fast facts about the road allowance testing:Road-allowance-equipment_collage

  • No road closings are anticipated.
  • The work is expected to take approximately eight months.
  • Approximately 175 road allowances, alleys and laneways will be investigated; all other road allowances were tested in 2001.
  • Earlier work identified the 175 road allowances and rights-of-way that are the subject of the current work.
  • Results from this testing will determine which road allowances will require follow-up borehole drilling/soil sampling for low-level radioactive waste, expected to take place in 2017.
