Two Projects to Improve Highway 97
Prince George, B.C. – Two projects on Highway 97 in Prince George will reduce congestion, and improve safety.
Work is underway on a $400,000 project to improve access to and from Massey Drive at Highway 97. The acceleration lane onto the highway is being lengthened to improve merging, and the deceleration lane to the off-ramp is
also being extended. Work is expected to be completed by the end of August.
Once that project is complete, work will start on a project to improve safety at the Highway 97/5th Avenue intersection. A deceleration lane, approximately 50 metres in length, will be added to Highway 97 to improve right turns onto
5th Avenue and reduce congestion at the intersection. The project is valued at $300,000.
