PENTICTON - Highway 3 improvements continue between the Okanagan and Hope with an announcement by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Thirteen kilometres of the Hope-Princeton highway will be resurfaced this year near Allison Pass, and 21 kilometres from Princeton east to Bromley Rock will also be resurfaced, according to a B.C. Government media release.

The two paving projects were awarded to Peter’s Bros. Construction of Penticton, in amounts of $5.53 million for the Allison Pass work and $1.98 million for the Bromley Rock stretch.

Work is expected to begin later in the season and completed by fall. The paving projects follow the completion of a major highway realignment project between Sunday Creek and Sunday Summit last year.

Motorists are advised some single lane, alternating traffic will be required.
