Construction is about to begin on a new acceleration lane that will improve safety for motorists when they are exiting Highway 19 southbound, so they can merge onto Highway 4 westbound near Qualicum Beach.
Hazelwood Construction Services Inc. was the successful bidder and has been awarded a $403,260 contract for the project.
Work is expected to begin after Labour Day and will be completed by October 2017.
During construction, the ministry will ensure traffic delays are kept minimal, particularly during peak periods. Motorists are advised to pay special attention to signs because of changing traffic patterns, obey traffic control personnel, and watch for workers throughout the project.
