Construction of a second lane by the provincial transportation ministry is underway on Keith Ave. across from Walmart.

The provincial transportation ministry is adding a second vehicle lane and a wider shoulder for pedestrians and cyclists on Hwy16, also known as Keith Ave., across from Walmart.

The work is on the north side of the road from Walmart stretching from the intersection east to the Dudley Little Bridge.

“The project involves extending the current west-bound two lane section of Keith Ave. from Kerr St. to the Dudley Little Bridge,” said a statement from the transportation ministry.

The project is designed to “enhance safety” and will allow for better vehicle flow through at the intersection with Walmart and also “provide a widened and paved pedestrian/cyclist shoulder through the length of the project,” the statement continued.

The project is scheduled to finish the end of November at an estimated cost of $200,000.

It’s one of two major projects on Hwy16 locally being undertaken by the ministry.

The other, in conjunction with the City of Terrace and CN, is installing traffic lights and making road improvements at the Frank St. railway crossing west of town.
