Highway 97 North Upgrades Completed Ahead of Schedule
Prince George, B.C. – Good news for those headed north this weekend as upgrades to one of B.C.’s most important transportation corridors are now complete.
Thirty-two kilometres of Highway 97 have been resurfaced between Whiskers Point and Mackenzie Junction.
The contractor, Green Roads Recycling, used the hot-in-place recycling method to fix the deteriorated areas of the roadway. The work is expected to preserve the highway for years to come.
The $4.5 million project was finished ahead of its expected completion date next month.
The work is part of the government’s 10-year transportation plan ‘B.C. on the Move.’
