Open house for Telkwa passing lane

An open house is being held Sept. 30 on a proposed Highway 16 passing lane east of Telkwa and improvements to the Bulkley View rest area.

The public is invited to attend a drop-in information session on Wednesday, Sept. 30 about a proposed passing lane on Highway 16 east of Telkwa.

The eastbound passing lane would begin just east of Woodmere Road and extend for two kilometres. The project would also include improvements to the Bulkley View rest area. This proposed project would reduce traffic congestion in the area and provide safe passing opportunities for motorists. It would also improve the ability for large vehicles to turn in and out of the Bulkley View rest area.

Staff from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will be at the open house to provide information and answer questions. If you are unable to attend, please send your comments or questions to the project manager, Catherine Deol, at: Catherine.Deol@gov.bc.ca

Open House:

Wednesday, Sept. 30

2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Telkwa Community Hall

Lawson Road, Telkwa
