Construction is on target for the new development at Souris beach.

The project, located at the entrance of the town, involves a new boardwalk, retail shops, playground, washrooms, and picnic area.

Denis Thibodeau, the deputy mayor of Souris, said work began last fall and things are looking good.

“Now there is going to be a nice boardwalk, a nice seawall, a place for the kids to wash their feet, enhanced toilets, of course the boutiques, the ice cream shop. It's all going to enhance the entrance to the town,” he said.

Thibodeau hopes it will draw even more people to the seaside town.

He said the final details will be complete by July.
