Clarification regarding Darfield passing lanes

None of the projects between McMurphy and Kamloops have been confirmed

To the editor;

With regard to your article entitled ‘Highway plans new passing lane for near Darfield’ in the Feb. 5 issue of the Star/Journal, we’d like to provide some clarification on a couple of points:

• None of the projects between McMurphy and Kamloops have been confirmed.

• The headline of the article (Highways plans new passing lane for near Darfield) suggests that passing lanes are moving forward, however government has not yet made the final decision to move forward with any of the proposed passing lane or passing lane(s).

• The ministry was updating the community leaders on the work  done to date to identify priorities along the corridor and to start looking further at the feasibility of future passing lanes along sections identified as good candidates.

Thanks – please feel free to contact me should you have any follow up questions.

Sonia Lowe,

Public Affairs Officer

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
