Two road projects worth $5 million underway in the Cariboo-Chilcotin

Two road rehabilitation projects valued at almost $5 million are underway in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Two road rehabilitation projects valued at almost $5 million are underway in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Each of these projects are expected to be completed by October.

The first  project involves sealcoating about 65 kilometres of West Fraser Road between Williams Lake and Quesnel.

This is supposed to provide a smoother ride on West Fraser Road for motorists who wish to take an alternate route instead of Highway 97 between Williams Lake and Quesnel.

This contract is valued at more than $2 million and was awarded to White Bear Industries Ltd.

The second project involves resurfacing approximately four kilometers of Highway 20 and just over 12 kilometres of side roads in the Williams Lake area.

Fox Mountain Road, Hodgson Road and Dog Creek Road will be overlaid with new asphalt. This will provide the benefit of a safer and smoother ride to tourists and local residents of the Williams Lake area.


“Identifying areas of improvement such as these benefit the safety of the travelling public as well as improve the quality and lifespan of our roads,” says Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett.
