PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – B.C.’s Ministry of Transportation is planning an open house to discuss possible locations for the Prince George south weigh scale which will be relocated along Hwy. 97.

The open house will take place sometime this fall and will give truckers, fleets and the public input on the new location.

The Ministry is currently identifying possible locations along Hwy. 97 between the Old Cariboo Highway and Red Rock.

The top candidates will be up for discussion at the open house.

The relocation of the south weigh scale is part of the Cariboo Conector strategy to four-lane Hwy. 97 from Prince George to Cache Creek.

The Ministry says the new scale will provide safer and more efficient access and will also be able to process trucks faster, eliminating congestion which exists at the current scale.

The new scale should be up and running by fall, 2007. The date of the open house had not yet been determined as of press time.
