The project involves:
- four-laning approximately six kilometres of highway with a better alignment;
- building a new four-lane bridge over the Salmon River;
- improving access to the community for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists; and
- installing median barrier.
Accelerating Highway 1 upgrades between Kamloops and the Alberta border is a priority for the ministry, and is supported by government’s 2017 budget update with $273 million over the next three years.
