As of May 18, work has already begun on major resurfacing projects in the southern Interior of B.C.
One such project is a 14-kilometre stretch of road between Swan Lake and Armstrong, which will be redone with hot-in-place recycled asphalt resurfacing.
According to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, anticipated completion is set for the end of June.
The Swan Lake resurfacing is part of 485 kilometres across the southern canvas of B.C that will see upgrades to highways, side roads along with renewing driving surfaces for local residents, travellers and the movement of goods.
“Maintaining high-quality roads is critical to maintaining connections for people, especially people living in more remote areas,” said Rob Fleming, minister of transportation and infrastructure. “The improvements we’re making across the region are going to make travel safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.”
In 2023, approximately $120 million will be invested to resurface southern Interior highways and local roads, ensuring that drivers continue to have a safe and comfortable driving experience.
Drivers are reminded to observe construction zone speed limits and the direction of traffic control personnel.
