WORK has started to widen the Sande Overpass in Terrace

Sande Overpass work begins in Terrace, B.C.

The project is supposed to improve traffic flow on the overpass which spans CN's tracks in town.

Work has started to widen the southern end of the Sande Overpass.

The extra width means there will be a second lane for vehicles turning east from the overpass to Keith Ave.

The plan also includes putting in new traffic signals at the southern end of the overpass which is part of the provincial government’s Hwy16 highway system.

Keith Ave. on that end will be slightly widened as well.

The work follows years of lobbying to the province by city council and others for a second overpass with local officials saying the current overpass traffic pattern leads to too much congestion.

That lobbying intensified because of more frequent and longer trains causing traffic lineups at the Kenney St. level crossing.

But the province responded with the Sande widening project which is costing $2.297 million through a contract awarded to Adventure Paving of Prince Rupert.

Work is expected to wrap up this year and then resurfacing is to be done next year.
