Open House Today For Highway 16 Widening Project
Prince George, B.C. – Locals are invited to an open house today regarding a proposal to widen Highway 16 west of Prince George.
The proposal is part of the provincial government’s 10-year transportation plan, On the Move.
The project proposes to widen a section of Highway 16 to four lanes from the Bunce/Gauthier Road intersection to the east of Jensen Road.
The government says the upgrade will improve the safety and capacity of Highway 16 for those travelling to and from B.C.’s northwest and for those living in communities west of Prince George.
Staff from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will be at the open house to answer questions and provide information.
It will take place from 1pm to 7pm today in the Banquet Hall in the Bon Voyage Inn. Those unable to attend may forward their comments or questions to the project manager, Brent Davies at: Brent.Davies@gov.bc.ca.
Construction is anticipated for the summer of 2017.
