$7.9-million project will cover 27 kilometres of highway

Road crews have begun resurfacing work on Highway 37 near the Meziadin Junction.

The $7.9 million project will cover 27 kilometres of highway, starting about 60 kilometres north of the junction and continuing north to Burrage Air Strip.

This is one of nine major highway projects in northern B.C. totalling and covering nearly 390 kilometres of highways and side roads, the goal of the Hwy 37 project is simply smoother and safer driving conditions.

“We are hard at work in northern B.C. this summer, paving roadways and building essential infrastructure,” said Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure in a press release. “These important projects will make a big difference to local people and those travelling through the region.”
