Blackwater Road Will See Improvements

Road improvements for the intersection at Highway 16 and Blackwater Road will be completed this fall.

"This work will improve safety for travellers at this busy intersection," said Prince George-Omineca MLA John Rustad. "The B.C. Government is committed to ensuring residents and visitors to region are as safe as possible on the roads, especially with the increase in log hauling due to the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic."

Kode Contracting Ltd., located in Prince George, won with a bid of $2,272,287.50. The construction contract is the final component of the project, valued at $3 million.
