Find out which section of Hwy. 16 will have four lanes

Work is underway to double the capacity of Hwy. 16 starting at the Bunce Road intersection, just west of Prince George.

Work is underway to double the capacity of Hwy. 16 starting at the Bunce Road intersection, just west of Prince George, for approximately 3.4 km.

As part of B.C. on the Move, the province’s 10-year transportation plan, the ministry of transportation and infrastructure proposes to widen a section of Hwy. 16 to four lanes from the Bunce/Gauthier Rd. intersection to the east of Jensen Rd.

This upgrade will improve the safety and capacity of Hwy. 16 for those travelling to and from B.C.’s northwest and for those living in communities just west of Prince George.

A drop-in information session about proposed improvements was held on Sept. 17, 2015, in Prince George. If you were unable to attend the open house, please send your comments or questions to the project manager, Brent Davies, at Brent.Davies@gov.bc.ca

Construction is anticipated for the summer of 2017.
