County Road 12 will be the lucky recipient of 6 new culverts thanks to the Gelert Road paving project coming in under budget.

Haliburton County council heard yesterday that $130,000 was left after the completion of the hot mix paving on County Road 1. Staff recommended the money be used to replace the deficient culverts so the last 10 kilometres of Livingstone Lake Road can be paved next year.

The work will be awarded to Weir Gradall (Grade-all), and should be completed this fall, while water levels remain low.
