Open house for Highway 1 upgrades near Illecillewaet

Open house scheduled for Nov. 14, from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Selkirk Room at the Regent Hotel.

  • Nov. 8, 2016 7:00 a.m.

Revelstoke residents will have an opportunity Monday afternoon to peruse the province’s plans for four-laning Highway 1 near Illecillewaet.

The open house is scheduled for Nov. 14, from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Selkirk Room at the Regent Hotel.

This information session is being hosted by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, and is an opportunity for the public to learn more about the work planned to four-lane a 2.5-kilometre section of highway, and expand the existing brake check area, on the Trans-Canada Highway 42 kilometres east of Revelstoke.

Ministry staff will be available to go over the information, answer questions and receive feedback.

The project will include acceleration and deceleration lanes for the brake-check area and a turn-around to enable drivers to choose an alternative route.

Anyone unable to attend the open house can provide feedback online at www.gov.bc.ca/bchwy1-projects.
