New Mills wharf project to begin following lobster season

Fisheries and Oceans Canada says construction of a new breakwater at the New Mills wharf will begin once the spring lobster season wraps up.

Department's Krista Petersen says a tender for the project was awarded back in February.

Petersen tells the Tribune that work was supposed to begin last fall and be completed by next month but says those plans were delayed.

Preparatory work at the site has already begun.
