It turns out the Provincial Transporation Minister’s next Alaska Highway project is, a Mile Six Passing Lane.
Kevin Falcon was in the South Peace today saying, the three million dollar project will improve both traffic flow and highway safety.
He says Mile Six was chosen for upgrading, because it’s the first significant uphill grade between Dawson Creek and Fort St. John.
Local area MLA Blair Lekstrom also noted the project is a response to recommendations, from the Alaska Highway 97, 2007 corridor study.
It is one of several projects included, in this year’s 36 million dollar roads improvement program, in the South Peace.
Yesterday, Mr. Falcon and Peace River North MLA Richard Neufeld put the government stamp, on a 44 million dollar North Peace roads improvement program.
