Motorists can expect roadwork throughout Hants County leading up to the close of the construction season.

There are a number of projects approved for the county, meaning construction crews will be busy from sunrise to sunset.

About two kilometres of Mines Road in Upper Falmouth will be reduced to one lane for graveling and seal coating until Aug. 29. This project is estimated to cost $277,000.

On Highway 202, MacInnis Brook Bridge and Glen Brook Bridge are in line for structural improvements to the tune of $1,255,000 and a four-kilometre stretch from Trunk 14 to Clarksville Road has been approved for a new pave job worth $1,727,000.

A 5.4-kilometre section of Woodville Road, from Ashdale Road to the Ardoise School Road, will be repaved, along with 2.7 kilometres of Ashdale Road. The tender for that project has yet to be awarded.
