Highway 95 near Golden gets $2 Million upgrade
The Province will be investing over $2 million this year to resurface and widen a portion of Highway 95, approximately nine kilometres south of Golden, improving the route for area residents, tourists, the forest industry and commercial transport vehicles along this important corridor.
Approximately six kilometres of Highway 95 will be resurfaced between Nicholson Road and Horse Creek Road South. The existing narrow paved shoulders will be widened to two metres along this section, to improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
Portions of two local side roads will also be resurfaced. Those are:
- Moberley Branch Road – 2.2 kilometres (existing gravel surface to be paved)
- Campbell Road – 1.2 kilometres
A $2-million contract has been awarded to Interoute Contracting Ltd., a West Kootenay company. Work is scheduled to get underway this summer and be finished by the end of September.
