Construction is complete on a project that will improve safety at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road.
The project, valued at $175,000, includes improved lighting, the installation of a flashing beacon and construction of a dedicated right-turn deceleration lane on to Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road. The start of the westbound passing lane on the Trans-Canada Highway will also be moved west of the intersection.
A B.C. government press release notes these improvements will help reduce the number of collisions at the intersection and reduce delays for side road traffic turning left onto the highway.
“Safety is our number-one concern,” said Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. “Making Highway 1 safer is one of our government’s key commitments, and this and other improvements show we are delivering on that promise.”
