B.C.'s Ministry of Transportation issued a tender for upgrades to three roads to improve safety and access to the Site C dam construction site June 9.

The tender process will close June 30. All three roads are located near Fort St. John.

Projects involved include upgrades and paving for 1.6 kilometres of 240 Road, upgrades and paving for 900 metres of 269 Road, paving and partial realignment for 5.6 kilometres of Old Fort Road, as well as installation of street lights and various intersections along Old Fort Road and 240 Road.

“The road work and paving will result in a smoother riding surface, a higher level of safety and improve dust control,” the ministry said in a release. “Wider shoulders will make the roads safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. Street lights will enhance safety through improved visibility.”

The work is expected to start this summer and be complete in September 2016.
