featured-image-canada-and-bcTERRACE, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 25, 2016) – From visiting friends and relatives to getting goods to market, we rely on our roads, bridges and highways to support a vibrant economy and great quality of life. Investing in modern transportation infrastructure will help create jobs and grow the middle class now, while building the foundation for a strong economic future.

That is why the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia (B.C.) today announced $37,737,949 to improve Highway 16. The project includes the construction of five additional passing lanes along Highway 16 as well as an upgrade to the junction of Highway 16 and 37 in Terrace, where there is currently a four-way stop.

Once completed, the project will improve safety and traffic flow for all highway users, including local residents, tourists and commercial drivers by providing additional opportunities to safely pass slower moving vehicles. It will also support future economic development in the region by contributing to a more efficient transportation network in northern British Columbia.
