Traffic lights at Alaska Highway intersection with DGR now complete

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone announced this morning that the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of the Alaska Highway and the Dangerous Goods Route is now complete.

“Highway 97 through Dawson Creek is a heavily travelled route, particularly by commercial traffic serving resource industries throughout northern British Columbia,” said Stone. “Traffic signals at the DGR intersection will not only increase reliability for truckers who use this busy road to keep goods and services moving through the region, but safety will also be improved for residents and visitors to the region.”

The $1.75-million project was completed by Fort St. John-based Interoute Construction Ltd.

“The completion of this project is a great example of how quickly we are able to address our local transportation needs and make the improvements needed to keep things moving,” said Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier. “We are committed to providing our local industries with safe and reliable infrastructure, and this latest upgrade is proof of that.”

The project is part of the government’s 10-year plan transportation infrastructure improvement plan.
