A resurfacing project on Highway 5 near Barriere is now underway, marking the beginning of a busy season of resurfacing in the southern Interior region, covering more than 450 kilometres of highways and side roads.

This first project on Highway 5, between Agate Bay Road and Darfield, includes 16 kilometres of resurfacing. Dawson Construction of Kamloops was awarded the $4.6-million contract for the work, which is now underway and is expected to be completed this spring.

More than $85 million is being invested in highway and side road improvements in the southern Interior in 2018. Other major resurfacing projects taking place in the region this spring and summer include:

  • Highway 3/95 near Creston –  Resurfacing 36 kilometres of Highway 3, from Arrow Creek Road to Yahk; 11 kilometres of Highway 95, from Kingsgate to Curzon; and 23.5 kilometres of selected side roads in the Kitchener, Arrow Creek, Kidd Creek, Kingsgate, Yahk and Moyie areas.
  • Highway 5 near Merritt – From Portia Bridge to Kingsvale, resurfacing 38 kilometres of the Coquihalla Highway.
