Province funds repairs to Alaska Highway

The Alaska Highway will be getting some repairs this summer, after the Provincial Government announced it will be investing $6.7 million for major repairs and rehabilitation projects.

Prince George-Peace River M.P. Jay Hill made the investment announcement on Thursday.

Two B.C. companies and one Alberta-based company were awarded the tenders for the projects.

A Kamloops company will take on improvements to an intersection around 125 kilometres north of Fort St. John, and stablization of a section of the highway, at a cost of 1.4 million dollars.

A construction company out of Penticton was awarded a $3.2 million contract to undertake 15 kilometres of asphalt paving work south of Fort Nelson.

And a Crossfield, Alberta company was awarded a contract of $2 million dollars to repair the deck surfaces of eight bridges on the Alaska Highway.

Hill says these improvements will generate local jobs and create long-term economic benefits.

The projects are scheduled to be completed by October of this year.
