Your cell phone can now receive immediate road updates for the Sea to Sky Highway.

Sponsored by the Ministry of Transportation and the Weather Network, the service was designed specifically for the Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project and is the first text message based road alert system in Canada.

In the event of an unscheduled closure, text messages will be sent to subscribers’ cell phones.

The Road Alerts service is available on most wireless carriers. Each alert costs 25 cents and subscribers are billed directly by their service providers. To subscribe send a text message to ROADS (76237) with the text "Sea to Sky" in the body.
