CHASE - Seven hundred thousand dollars in improvements to local area side roads in Turtle Valley near Squilax Anglemont Road are now complete.

"Grading and gravelling is now complete for side roads in the Turtle Valley area west of Chase," said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. "We heard that the condition of these roads needed to be improved and we moved it to the top of our list. I'm pleased to see this work done as it benefits local travel on these important side roads."

The completed work included improvements to 26 kilometres of side roads, grading, gravelling and drainage. Some of the roads that had improvements include:

  • Turtle Valley Road
  • Black Mountain Road
  • Bailey Road
  • Skimikin Road
  • Hepburn Road

Work to stabilize the base of these roads will continue when weather permits in spring 2017.

This project is part of B.C. on the Move, the B.C. government's 10-year plan for the improvement of the province's transportation network.
