Passing lane construction begins on Highway 97

A new passing lane will be created on the Alaska Highway after a $2.1 million investment from the Province.

A study was recently conducted on Highway 97’s Mile 12 location near Farmington. It concluded that adding a passing lane at that location would improve traffic flow and reduce traffic accidents.

Following the completion of the bidding process, a contract was awarded to Tyam Construction for just under $2.1 million. Work is already getting underway, and motorists can expect minor traffic delays.

But, in order to mitigate disruptions to drivers, two-way traffic will be maintained through most of the project.

The project is funded under the Province’s three-year, $14-billion capital infrastructure program.

Construction of the new passing lane should be completed by October.
