A Crescent Valley company is being honoured for its work by the provincial government.

Selkirk Paving of Crescent Valley has won this year’s deputy minister’s contractor of the year award in the category of paving for the Highway 3 Bombi Junction to Nelway Junction resurfacing project.

“This award is well-deserved and highlights the excellent work performed by Selkirk Paving to improve the essential Highway3 corridor and side-road network, along with the true community spirit shown when crews went above and beyond the job at hand,” saidTransportation andInfrastructure Minister Todd Stone.

This $4.8-million contract included paving 26 kilometres of Highway 3 south of Salmo. Work also involved paving five kilometres of side roads, as well as additional paving on municipal roads in partnership with the villages of Fruitvale and Salmo.

Selkirk Paving won the award based on excellent quality control and their brand new asphalt plant that resulted in reduced emissions, the ministry said. In addition, the crew worked in close partnership with local governments, donated their work at the Salmo Youth Centre and on a parking project in Crescent Valley.
