More of Highway 97 south of Prince George will be four-laned this summer.
Work will begin on four-laning three kilometres of the highway this summer. Transportation Minister Todd Stone made the announcement Thursday in Prince George.
The $45 million project is located approximately 29 kilometres south of Prince George and will see three kilometres of Highway 97 between Stone Creek Bridge and the Red Rock Weigh Station widened from two to four lanes. The work also includes replacing the Red Rock CN Rail overhead to accommodate the new four-lane highway. This will also increase the height clearance to 5.5 metres, which will improve the CN railway alignment and allow greater clearance for larger trucks and loads.
