Tenders for the proposed construction of a new Riverview Manor closed the middle of April, but there is still no sign of construction starting.
The province called for nine tenders between February and April of this year for the various phases of construction.
The Department of Transportation has confirmed none of those tenders has been awarded yet and there is no timeline as to when that will happen.
The facility will be built on Fraser Street, on the site of the old Montague High School
A year ago, Brighton Construction obtained a building permit from the Town of Montague at the cost of $19,924 to the Charlottetown based company. The permit elapsed Tuesday, May 9.
At the time construction of the new $12.5 million facility was put on hold by the province. However, an announcement was made late last fall that construction would begin this spring.
“If we don’t start work within the time period of the building permit, it will be up to our department to work with the town on renewing or extending the current permit,” a spokesperson from the Department of Transportation said.
