New Passing Lane for Highway 16 West
Vanderhoof, B.C. – Good news for motorists who frequent Highway 16 West.
The provincial government says work is now complete on a new eastbound passing lane that they say “will enhance safety and the flow of traffic.”
The 1.5 km long passing lane is located approximately 28 kilometres east of Vanderhoof near Degal Pit Road and was constructed at estimated cost of $5.35 million.
The passing lane is part of B.C. on the Move, Victoria’s 10-year plan for the improvement of the province’s transportation network.
