Nearly six kilometres of Sea to Sky roads will get a facelift this spring, announced the B.C. Government on Friday, May 8.
A $1.8-million contract has been awarded to Alpine Paving to resurface a two-and-a-half kilometre stretch of Squamish Valley Road, located 16 kilometres north of Highway 99, as well as nearly three kilometres of Pemberton Portage Road, about 18 kilometres north of Highway 99.
“These routes are well travelled by residents, visitors and industry alike and are vital links for many,” said Jordan Sturdy, MLA for West Vancouver Sea to Sky, in a statement on his website. “This project will rehabilitate nearly six kilometres of road, greatly improving both safety and the driving experience.”
Work on both routes is slated to begin this month and is expected for completion in July.
Victoria has emphasized the rehabilitation of provincial highways, bridges and roads in its 10-year transportation plan, B.C. on the Move, which outlines critical investments and improvements throughout the province.
The province will invest $380 million over the next three years to resurface provincial highways, with 1,000 kilometres of highway repaved annually.
