Starrs Road
Construction: WalMart & SuperStore

Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada
June 1st 2004

There has been much speculation as to what exactly is happening on the north east end of Starr's Rd. What is going up, when and where.  Speculation and rumor has been circulating for years.   One thing is for sure something big is in progress.  GrassRoutes has talked with various individuals and there are many different stories.  We will tell you what we hear.  Is it fact or fiction?  Well those at the top, it seems, would like to keep it a mystery. 
1.  Some very heavy power cables are going up to the site.

2. Heavy excavation equipment came on site today.  The contractor is from Truro and expects to have his part of the work done in about three weeks. Area (A&B)


3. A local contractor is clearing out the land close to Sobey's  which can be seen in the background.  To the left is where the new Sears building is said to be going.    Sobey's is also planning to expand.  Some saw it will be expanding into the Bargain Giant's present location but one worker in at Sobey's said it will expand into areas within the store that are not being utilized to their fullest at present. 


4. White tail dear tracks in the soft mud on the construction site.
