PENTICTON - Highway reconstruction continues to move forward in the Sunday Summit to Sunday Creek section of the Hope-Princeton Highway.

The realignment work is on schedule to be completed in the fall, Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure spokesperson Kate Mukasa says.

The project includes widening and realignment of the highway to include four kilometres of new passing lanes on a section of the highway prone to traffic slowdowns.

Mukasa says the project is still on budget for a total cost of $27.7 million.

Motorists are reminded of the need to slow down while travelling through the construction zone.

The ministry asks those travelling in the area to be aware of workers on the highway, to follow their directions and slow down for their safety.
