Two Cariboo Connector four-lane projects on Highway 97 near 70 Mile House were completed Oct. 29, increasing safety and mobility on this important corridor.

The $11.8-million 70 Mile North project widened four kilometres of highway from just north of Willow Road to 1.2 km north of Cunningham Road.

The $14-million Stormy Road project has re-aligned and expanded 4.4 km of highway, starting approximately one km south of Stormy Road and tying into the existing four-lanes at Bullock Road.

The expansion improves mobility for those connecting to Clinton or 100 Mile House. The two additional lanes provide new passing opportunities in both directions to improve safety for motorists.
