VICTORIA, B.C. — Commercial vehicles travelling Vancouver Island will enjoy some highway upgrades, the province has announced.
Road improvements are taking place in the Port Alberni area along Hwy. 4 as part of the Ministry of Transportation’s commitment to improve transportation infrastructure, the department says.
Phase 1 of the upgrades include subgrade construction for slow-moving vehicle pullouts and shoulder widening. Phase 2 includes rehabilitation and resurfacing of about 8.9 kms of Hwy. 4. This stretch will also see improvements to the road surface and shoulder widths with concrete barriers and signage updated as well.
The province is warning drivers to expect delays as construction continues in the area. Work is expected to wrap up in mid-September.
