QUESNEL – Over $1 million will be invested to resurface 6 km of Horsefly Road this summer, providing safer driving conditions for the travelling public.

“Continually improving safety is our government’s priority, especially in rural areas such as the Cariboo to provide safer driving conditions for all motorists,” said Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes. “Resurfacing these sections of the road will improve safety and efficiency for residents, business, and the community.”

Approximately 6 km of Horsefly Road in the Rose Lake area will be resurfaced. A $1.1-million contract was awarded to Dawson Construction Limited of Kamloops. Work will take place this summer and be completed by September 30.

The rehabilitation of provincial highways, bridges and side roads is a priority of B.C. on the Move, a 10-year transportation plan that outlines critical investments and improvements throughout the province that will improve the daily lives of British Columbians.
