Province announces Hwy 1 upgrades and new Quartz Creek Bridge

Today, the Honourable Francois-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Claire Trevena, B.C. Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, announced funding to upgrade 4.4 kilometres of the Trans-Canada Highway between Glacier National Park and the Town of Golden.

Work involves widening the stretch of highway from two lanes to four and replacing the aging Quartz Creek Bridge with a new four-lane structure. Improvements will also be made to access roads near the Quartz Creek Bridge to reduce vehicle congestion, and a new bridge will be built to replace the Wiseman Creek Culvert.
