Merritt/Manning Park/Coquihalla – This summer, approximately 25 kilometres of Highway 3 between Sumallo Grove and Allison Pass will be resurfaced, using a more environmentally friendly technique, to make travel safer and smoother for people traveling through southern British Columbia.
Traveling through Manning Park, or anywhere else in the Southern Interior will have its fair share of road improvement projects.
Highway 5 near Merritt – From Portia Bridge to Kingsvale, resurfacing 38 kilometres of the Coquihalla Highway.
Highway 5, from the Nicola Interchange to Clapperton Brake Check and Coldwater Road near Merritt (32.5 kilometres)
Highway 97, from Deep Creek Bridge near Peachland to Glenrosa Road in West Kelowna (15 kilometres)
While these resurfacing projects are underway, drivers can expect minor delays and, at times, single-lane alternating traffic. The ministry appreciates peoples’ patience while this work is taking place.
Drivers are reminded to slow down, obey traffic control personnel, and to check DriveBC.ca for the most up-to-date highway information.
