A $3.34-million contract has been awarded to Green Roads Recycling of Fernie to resurface two sections of highway east of Chase.

The province says the work will use innovative, made-in-B.C., hot-in-place paving technology that produces 50 per cent fewer greenhouse gas emissions as it reuses and recycles existing pavement.

A 14-kilometre section of the Trans-Canada Highway from Chase Creek Bridge east to Cruikshank Point, and approximately 18 kilometres of Squilax-Anglemont Road from the north end of the Squilax Bridge to the entrance of Scotch Creek Provincial Park will be resurfaced.

Work is expected to be complete by the end of June.
