$6.2 million dollars in road safety improvements are coming to a popular tourism route between Bella Coola and Anahim Lake.
Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says however it won’t to the famous portion known as the Hill.
“Many times people have said you should pave that hill but you know in all the many, many years, I don’t think it will be ever paved because apparently according what I’ve been told by geologists, engineers, etc, that hill shifts-not greatly, but it moves a certain amount every year.”
Work on the project which will focus on rehabilitating a large stretch of Highway 20 in Bella Coola, as well as a section along Highway 20 in Anahim has already started with approximately 28 kilometers of Highway 20 heading east from the Bella Coola government wharf now complete.
The first five kilometers of resurfacing east of the Tatsquan Bridge to the 4 Mile Reserve will also include additional shoulder paving to accommodate local pedestrians and cyclists.
It’s set to wrap up by the end of July.
