BC set to tender Highway 1 widening project

Tendering is set to start for a project to widen a stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway in British Columbia.

Details will soon be posted to BC Bid, opening the search for a contractor to create four-lane section of Highway 1 between Donald and Forde Station Road to improve safety and increase capacity.

"The Trans-Canada Highway is a vital link for the people of British Columbia and getting this project out to tender shows our commitment to accelerating upgrades between Kamloops and the Alberta border,” said minister of transportation and infrastructure Claire Trevena during a tour of the corridor.

The Donald to Forde Station Road project is located approximately 20km west of Golden, and will expand 2.5km of highway to four lanes and improve access to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement inspection station.

The ministry anticipates awarding the contract in early 2018, with construction starting in spring 2018 for completion in fall 2019.

The total estimated project cost of CA$19.4m is cost-shared, with the government of Canada contributing up to CA$7.27m and the province providing the remaining CA$12.13m.
