“With our move into northern B.C., the new name makes a lot of sense. Our operations have expanded beyond the Interior,” Sam McCarthy, division manager of operations, said in a news release.

“As well, the name reinforces our connection within the Dawson Group, which has such a tremendous history in construction in B.C. We are fortunate to have access to the companies within the Dawson Group as well as their equipment and expertise, all of which allows us to provide road maintenance services in our areas more efficiently."

Starting June 1, the company will be responsible for road maintenance provincial service area 22, which includes provincial roadways for Fort St. John, Fort Nelson, and Hudson's Hope, and Highways 97, 29, and 77. It takes over the contract from Yellowhead Road & Bridge, and is scheduled to meet with municipal officials in Fort St. John, Taylor, Hudson’s Hope, and Fort Nelson next week.

The company is the highway maintenace contractor covering the Cariboo from Cache Creek to north of Williams Lake to Bella Coola in the west.

The Dawson Group is headquartered in Kamloops, and includes Dawson Construction, Eagle Rock Construction, IRL International Truck Centres, IRL Idealease and DCM Transport.
