Cariboo Connector

The Cariboo Connector widens the 440 km portion of Highway 97 between Cache Creek and Prince George to four lanes. 

Highway 97 - Wright Station Curves

Economic growth in the oil and gas, forestry, mining and tourism industries has increased the need for a safe, reliable and efficient four-lane resource and trade highway that connects Northern B.C. with the Interior, through the heart of the province.

An improved Highway 97 will increase safety and decrease traveling times while providing northern communities with a first-class trade corridor that will support increased commercial traffic to meet the needs of an expanding economy.

Phase 1

Phase 1 started in 2007, with all 18 projects completed by June 2011.

Phase 2

Phase 2 of the work to widen the Cariboo Connector to four lanes consists of nine projects. This will add 30 km of new four-lane sections to Highway 97.
