August 8, 2017 - Construction is getting underway on new passing lanes on B.C. Highway 5 between Barriere and Little Fort, near Darfield, improving safety along this stretch of the Yellowhead Highway north of Kamloops.

“This project will get going fairly quickly, now that the contract is awarded,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena. “Safety improvements, including the construction of a three-kilometre southbound passing lane and the extension of a northbound passing lane, will improve safety for motorists by providing more opportunities to pass.”

A new three-kilometre southbound passing lane will be added, and the existing northbound passing lane will be extended by 2.7 kilometres. Improvements to the intersection at the junction of Highway 5 and Boulder Mountain Road will also be completed as part of this project.

Eagle Rock Construction Ltd. from Kamloops was awarded an $8.8-million contract for the project. Estimated completion is in fall 2018.
