The Department of Highways and Public Works is responsible for ensuring safe and efficient public highways, airstrips, buildings and information systems.
A child fatality is eight times more likely when you’re driving 50 km/h instead of 30 km/h.
30 km/h in a school zone is the only math you need to know.
Remember — kids are back in school.
Highways and Public Works is doing some important road construction work along the Alaska Highway, just before the Pioneer RV Park past McRae.
This work will happen in the northbound lane and will extend to just before the Miles Canyon access. Work crews will be constructing a northbound passing lane and right turn lanes into the RV Park and Utah Landing.
The project will improve safety and traffic flow on this section of road.
Clearing work for the project is now complete and construction has begun.
Please remember to slow down and pay attention to flag persons in this construction zone and please pay attention to cyclists and pedestrians also using this stretch of road.
Highways and Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks travellers and local area residents for their patience. For more information about this project, please contact Doris Wurfbaum at 867-393-7193.
