Both projects are valued at a combined total of $2.5 million.

Blair Lekstrom, Peace River South MLA, says these projects are critical when attempting to maintain and improve safety on the region’s highways.

"Resurfacing projects are crucial for the longevity of our roads and safety of the travelling public, and this improvement will be well received by the many people who travel this highway."

The Highway 97 project will include the resurfacing of close to three kilometres of road, which will improve the strength and safety of the road.

Work began on September 24, with the majority of the work being done at night to minimize the disruption of traffic. Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.

The project has been awarded to Peters Bros. Construction Ltd. and is valued at $479,512.

The second project will be the first phase of the 4-lane works on Highway 2, close to the Alberta border, beginning 3 kilometres west of the border at Tupper Creek and ending east of 192 Road.

Work being done throughout that area will include clearing, stripping of organic soil, road base construction and installation of drainage.

The project has been awarded to Dawson Creek’s Brocor Construction Ltd. and is valued at over $2 million.

Construction starts this month and is scheduled to be completed by the end of November.
