The province is well on its way to implementing the recommendations made by Opus International following a November snowstorm that stranded 1,500 motorists on the Cobequid Pass.

"There are some we're still working on, but there's quite a few of them we have implemented," Catherine MacIsaac of the Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Department said.

Last week, the province called for tenders to pave eight kilometres of the old Trans-Canada Highway through the Wentworth Valley.

While the road was reduced to secondary status when the 44-kilometre Cobequid Pass was opened in 1997, the consultants recommended maintaining that highway as an alternate emergency route.
