Another Piece of the Cariboo Connector Project Planned
Williams Lake, B.C.- A tentative agreement has been reached between the B.C. government and the Williams Lake Indian Band to move forward on four-laning Highway 97 through the Williams Lake Indian Reserve #1 from 150 Mile House to Lexington Road.
The project will add over six kilometres of four-laning, as well as turning and deceleration lanes. Construction will also start on a new on-reserve frontage road that will link the Williams Lake Indian Band’s Coyote Rock Development Project, and other development lands, with new Highway 97 construction.
The tender for the new $47-million project is anticipated for this fall with completion scheduled for late fall 2017. The agreement must still be approved by the Williams Lake Indian Band community before it is finalized.
