Highway 1 users can look forward to a $3.4 million repaving project between Bridal Veil Falls and Hope. The project is designed to improve the safety conditions along a 37.5 kilometre stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Included in the project is the removal of rough sections of pavement, as well as increasing the asphalt strength, which will provide a more stable highway for today’s volumes of commercial traffic and heavier loads along B.C.’s most important and traveled corridor.

“Highway 1 is a vital conduit that connects communities throughout my riding,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness.”This multi-million dollar investment acknowledges the importance of keeping Highway 1 in top condition.”

The project was contracted by Emil Anderson Maintenance of Rosedale and will commence in late-April with a completion date in mid-July.

The rehabilitation of provincial highways, brides and side roads is a priority of B.C. on the Move, a 10-year transportation plan that outlines critical investments and improvements throughout the province that will vastly improve the daily lives of British Columbians.
