Squamish, British Columbia – British Columbia has unveiled a plaque recognizing the contributions of workers towards the Sea-to-Sky Highway improvement project.

“The commemorative plaque we unveil today includes the names of 2,124 people who were involved in the six years of planning, engineering, design and construction of the vastly improved Sea-to-Sky Highway from West Vancouver to Whistler,” said Premier Gordon Campbell. “Their dedication and commitment has resulted in a safer, more efficient highway for all British Columbians and I want to thank each of them for their contributions.”

The $600 million project used the most innovative engineering techniques available, and features more passing lanes, smoother curves, better sightlines, highly reflective pavement markings and more effective intersections.
