Improvements to Highway 5

Safety improvements are coming to sections of Highway 5 north of Kamloops

Safety improvements are coming to sections of Highway 5 north of Kamloops, with Dawson Construction Limited of Kamloops awarded a $3.4 million dollar contract for resurfacing work thanks to the BC government.

All four lanes of Highway 5 north of Kamloops from CN Junction to near the community of Rayleigh will be resurfaced, as well as intermittent resurfacing on the highway north of Rayleigh.

There will also be paving repairs at the Mount Paul intersection; along Mount Paul Way and at the westbound on-ramp from Highway 5 to Highway 1; the Highway 1 eastbound slow lane at the Monte Creek Interchange; and the Highway 1 westbound slow lane just west of the Columbia Street fly-over.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
