Upgrades to a road leading into a North Coast area First Nations Community will be up for discussion this week.
The BC Transportation ministry is hosting an information session Thursday about the paving of Tuck Inlet Road into Lax Kw’alaams.
Beyond resurfacing the 17.5 kilometre stretch of road, the project will also see the addition of concrete barriers, speed reader boards, pullouts, and the replacement of a bridge.
Lax Kw’alaams members have had to brave two-foot potholes and thick dust during the summer as they traveled over the gravel road into the community.
Construction on the estimated $10 million dollar project is expected to begin this summer.
Thursday’s drop-in session will be held from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lax Kw’alaams Recreation Centre.
