Upgrading the highway to a modern, 100 km/h, four-lane standard, will allow traffic to move more safely and efficiently. Communities will be better connected, and businesses will be better able to move their products throughout the province, through our ports and beyond our borders.
The Province has committed $837-million to upgrading Highway 1 between Kamloops and the Alberta border over the next three years under Budget 2021.
This Highway 1 four-laning project through the Village of Chase will improve safety and reliability for people travelling along this important corridor. This project will be delivered through the following two phases with separate, but coordinated, schedules.
The Trans Canada Highway 1 Ford Road to Tappen Valley Road Four-Laning project will upgrade approximately 4.3 km of the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) and replace the Tappen Overhead bridge. The western limit of the project begins at Ford Road and extends through to its terminus 400 metres east of Tappen Valley Road.
This portion of the Highway 1 - Kamloops to Alberta program involves four-laning and other improvements along Highway 1 in west Salmon Arm, including intersection upgrades and construction of new frontage roads.
The Highway 1 four-laning project includes approximately 1.9 km of Highway 1 four-laning, replacement of the existing R.W. Bruhn Bridge with a new four-lane bridge, and intersection improvements between Old Sicamous Road and Silver Sands Road.
This portion of the Highway 1 Kamloops to Alberta program involves replacing the two-lane bridge crossing at Quartz Creek, 40 km west of Golden, with a new four-lane bridge, access improvements to forest service roads and widening 4.4 km of two-lane highway to four lanes.
