FORT NELSON, B.C. – The Government of Canada has awarded A.C.L. Construction a contract of $3.9 million for work on improvements to a stretch of the Alaska Highway in British Columbia.

The contract was announced Monday by Public Services and Procurement Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, with work to take place between kilometre 225 and 227 of the Alaska Highway to improve the Pink Mountain intersection.

This project involves a number of changes and additions to this stretch, with A.C.L. expected to add left-turn bays and additional lanes for acceleration and deceleration. Work will also include widening elevation, relocating signage, improving drainage and reducing blind spots for increased merging safety.

Public Services and Procurement Canada plan to work closely with the First Nations of the area, committing to awarding at least 12.5 per cent of the contract’s value to Indigenous suppliers and workers.


Work on this project is expected to begin in May 2024, with an estimated completion of September.
