FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – City Council is in favor of changing the Easy Bypass Road to “Northern Lights Drive.”

One Councillor even suggested changing the speed limit on the road from 50 km/h to 60 km/h.


Counciller Gord Klassen made the suggestion after Council approved the name change. There is no decision yet regarding the speed limit change.

It is now up to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to decide if the name change ultimately goes through.
