Work is under way to make major improvements to a road serving a remote northwest BC First Nation community.
The transportation ministry says paving Tuck Inlet Road will ensure safe and reliable access to Lax Kw’alaams for residents and tourists.
The 17.5 kilometre stretch of gravel road links the village and the dock of the ferry that villagers and visitors must travel on from Prince Rupert.
The $20 million project , announced last year, will also see the replacement of a bridge and added safety features like pullouts, speed reader boards, and concrete barriers.
The paving is expected to be done September 30th with the entire project slated for completion by the end of October.
