New highway interchange at Pritchard

The interchange is intended to provide safer access along the Trans-Canada Highway, particularly for residents and visitors to Pritchard

On Wednesday morning, drivers will begin using the new Pritchard interchange on Highway 1, about 40 kilometres east of Kamloops.

The interchange is intended to provide safer access along the Trans-Canada Highway, particularly for residents and visitors to Pritchard.

Motorists are reminded to obey traffic-control workers and construction speed limits and to watch for workers and highway message boards, as work continues on the second phase of the Monte Creek to Prichard project, which is expected to be completed later this year.

Traffic advisories and web cam views continue to be available online at drivebc.ca.

Project information is available online at: http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/highwayprojects/bchwy1/index.html.
