One of the projects is focused on the Hazelton area, where work should wrap up in June for some infrastructure work that includes:
A section of Highway 62 from the junction of Highway 16 to Recreation Road;
The Kispiox Valley Road from the junction of Highway 62 to Kispiox Village;
Aldous Street and Omineca Avenue in South Hazelton.
Also up for repair work this summer is:
The highway 35 area near Burns Lake and Highway 37 North south of Dease Lake and Lower Post Side Roads closer to Vanderhoof work in the Culculz Lake area will also bring some travel delays for travellers
Stikine MLA Nathan Cullen who is also Municipal Affairs minister noted of the the importance of road maintenance with the release of the paving plans today.
“In northern B.C., where often there are only a few road access points into remote and rural communities, highway and road maintenance is extremely important. Safe and reliable highways and roads are essential for northerners to get to work, school and appointments.” -- Stikine MLA and Municipal Affairs Minister Nathan Cullen
