The project is part of 400 km of resurfacing that will be done in the southern Interior this summer, announced the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

“Maintaining high-quality roads and highways is important for everyone on the road, whether private citizens or commercial vehicles,” said Claire Trevena, minister of transportation and infrastructure, in a news release. “All these paving projects in the southern Interior in 2019 will make a big difference to local people and those travelling through the region.”

While these resurfacing projects are underway, drivers can expect minor delays and, at times, single-lane alternating traffic. The ministry appreciates peoples’ patience while this work takes place.

Drivers are reminded to slow down, obey traffic control personnel and check DriveBC.ca for the most up-to-date highway information.
