Hubley section re-opened

The Hubley section has been be reopened. It was rolled today, grass seed applied and we are excited to be done.

While we have completed this, there is still crusher dust to go down, but that won’t happen until we get a good rain as to make it compact better.

We would like to thank Down 2 Dig Excavation as well as R MacKinnon Holdings for doing the work.

This will end our closures for the summer , we have another area to repair in the Ingramport/ Black Point area but that won’t commence until the Fall.

A few reminders for the users, as we have been gettting messages as of late
