The scope of the work includes upgrades to three roads, located about two kilometres south of Fort St. John. The public roads project includes the following:
- Upgrade and pave 1.6 kilometres of 240 Road.
- Upgrade and pave 900 meters of 269 Road.
- Widen, pave and partially realign 5.6 kilometres of Old Fort Road.
- Install street lights at various intersections along Old Fort Road and 240 Road.
This road work and paving will result in a smoother riding surface, a higher level of safety and improve dust control. Wider shoulders will make the roads safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. Street lights will enhance safety through improved visibility.
