Construction is set to begin this week on a new passing lane on the Alaska Highway north of Fort St. John.

Contractor Mackay Contracting announced it would begin work this week today on the two-kilometre long lane set for the northbound lane of Mile 63 of the highway, about 26 kilometres north of the city.

The $3-million project was announced last September. The province says the project will increase safety amid growing traffic on the highway.
