Work will soon start on a new roundabout to enhance safety and improve traffic flow at the intersection of Highway 16 and 37, replacing the four-way stop.
Highway 16 is the connector route to the Port of Prince Rupert. Highway 37 is the only corridor that links Highway 16 with Kitimat, home to the new LNG Canada facility.
The $9.3-million project, with $7.6 million through the Government of B.C. and $1.7 million through the Government of Canada, is expected to be complete in fall 2019.
During construction, drivers should still plan for minor delays and are reminded to slow down and use caution when travelling through the work area.
