The provincial government has issued a tender for the next phase of the Trans-Canada Highway four-laning project.
Work is expected to begin this spring through Chase, for the Chase Creek West to Chase Creek Bridge section. This project will widen 1.6 kilometres of the highway from two to four lanes, add a grade-separated interchange at Brooke Drive and extend improvements on Brooke Drive to Shuswap Avenue. Construction on the segment is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2023.
Work is already underway on the Chase Creek Road to Chase West section. It includes upgrades to highway intersections and frontage roads, along with construction of a pedestrian underpass and multi-use pathway.
The total budget for the Chase four-laning project is $260.3 million. This includes up to $12.1 million from the federal government under the New Building Canada Fund.
Provincial construction sites have protocols and policies in place following the requirements of the provincial health officer to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These measures include physical distancing and other protocols to ensure worker and public safety.
