One of the largest paving projects seen here in recent years continues with the prime contractor doing the work at night to reduce traffic problems.

LB Paving of Smithers, which is affiliated with local company Terrace Paving, is putting new top layer of asphalt on 8km of Hwy16 beginning in Thornhill and running along Hwy16/Keith Ave. until the Sande Overpass and then starting again on Hwy16 to the west end of Terrace.

“Drivers can expect single lane alternating traffic, with up to 20 minute delays. Most work is being done at night, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., to help avoid peak traffic times and limit delays,” said local highways ministry official Darrell Gunn.

On top of the Hwy16 work, several side roads are being repaved in Thornhill, including portions of Thornhill Frontage Road North, Thornhill Frontage Road South, and Old Lakelse Lake Drive.

“Some roads in the Kleanza area will also be resurfaced with recycled asphalt,” said Gunn.

The project completion date is scheduled for early July.
