Martin Prairie Road in Pritchard should be paved by the end of October, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Pending negotiations with property owner Lee Milne, the ministry had promised that repaving would be completed in the fall, but some residents were wondering if that would come to pass.
A spokeswoman for the ministry confirmed on Saturday that it has reached agreement with Milne on the road, which runs through his property.
Crews started working on Martin Prairie in late July and paved about 500 metres of the 2.5 kilometres slated for coverage before Milne intervened.
Ken Gillis, a Thompson-Nicola Regional District director, was promised in August that the work would be completed before the province's paving plants close in fall.
That was the last update Gillis had on the project, so the lack of activity had him wondering. By late summer, negotiations had not been resolved.
Milne has not responded to repeated requests for an interview, but Pritchard residents said Martin Prairie crosses part of Milne's land and he would not let crews work on it until the road is made safer.
Residents say the only unsafe thing about the road is it isn't paved.
"Spring of course, at the top of that mountain, isn't going to happen until June," he said.
Pritchard resident Dieter Arndt wants the province to act sooner rather than later. He said the mud, ice and potholes that come with winter can make driving on Martin Prairie dangerous.
"We'd like to have it done. They promised it," said Arndt.
