FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The province is investing approximately $62 million into resurfacing northern highways and local roads in 2023.
As part of the investment, conventional asphalt resurfacing will take place for Highway 97 and 27 kilometres of Fort St. John area side roads.
According to a release from B.C.’s Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the planned paving projects for the spring and summer will cover nearly 300 kilometres of highways and sideroads across the province.
“We know local residents and visitors in northern B.C. rely on highway infrastructure and local roads to travel around the region,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure.
“This year’s resurfacing projects across northern B.C. will ensure safe and reliable roadways that connect people to industry, urban centres and support local businesses.”
During construction, drivers are reminded to watch for construction zone speed limits and traffic control personnel. Updates about delays and closures are available on Drive BC’s website.
