The provincial government has called for site preparation and foundation work for a new $12.5 million Riverview long term care facility in Montague to replace the existing nearly 49-year old structure.
Last April, Premier Wade MacLauchlan announced the new 49-bed manor would be built on the site of the old Montague High School.
The initial bidding process was to close on May 5. Government will issue tenders for further work in mid to late May.
There also are plans for new long term care facility in Tyne Valley. Maynard indicated tenders will begin to be posted for this project in late May/early June.
