Quesnel Transportation Study

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure committed $300,000 over two years for a Highway 97 corridor analysis to determine the traffic patterns and long-term transportation needs of Quesnel.  

Evaluation of the Highway 97 Corridor

The study examines the corridor from the Highway 97/Barkerville Highway Junction to Basalt Road in the Quesnel area. Within 14 kilometres, conditions along Highway 97 change significantly as a result of the challenging geography.

Open House

You are invited to provide input on transportation needs for the Highway 97 corridor through Quesnel. Your input will help us to explore short, medium and long-term solutions to meet the needs of Quesnel and highway users.
