SHUSHWAP, B.C. — Drivers who frequent the Trans-Canada Highway in B.C. will see some major improvements taking place over the next year.

The Columbia River-Revelstoke and Shushwap areas will have lights are installed along the Jack MacDonald Snowshed. The Jack MacDonald Snowshed work will finish in preparation for next year’s lighting of the Lanark Snowshed.

“Lighting the two provincial snowsheds east of Revelstoke is a priority,” says Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Jim Doyle. “Although there are already centre-line reflectors and signs in place, adding lighting is another way of increasing safety for drivers on the Trans-Canada Highway.”

This year’s investment in the Cache Creek to the Rockies corridor will include about $5 million for rock excavation near Five Mile (Yoho) Bridge east of Golden, $6.4 million to design future projects, and funding to complete several projects underway.

“The province is taking the condition of the road seriously and continues to make improvements,” says Doyle.
