Front Street lane realignment in Quesnel
Courtesy of the Government of BC:
Drivers are advised to expect minor delays starting Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, as crews begin paving Highway 97/Front Street in Quesnel.
Drivers can also anticipate traffic pattern changes to follow. Once paving is completed, line painting will take place to reconfigure the lanes on Front Street between Moffat Bridge and River Park Road. The new lane configuration will improve safety and reduce congestion for people living in Quesnel and travelling through the area on Highway 97.
Currently, there are two southbound lanes and one northbound on this section, with no left-turn lanes between Moffat Bridge and River Park Road. The new lane configuration will provide one lane northbound, one lane southbound and a centre left-turn lane at controlled intersections.
People's patience is appreciated while this work is being carried out. Drivers are reminded to slow down, use caution and obey traffic control while travelling through the work area.
Drivers should continue to check DriveBC.ca and @DriveBC on Twitter for the most up-to-date information.
