Castlegar, British Columbia – B.C.’s Crowsnest Highway will be resurfaced near the Paulson Bridge in Castlegar this summer, as part of a broader plan to improve Highways 3, 3A and 3B.

“The Crowsnest Highway is a vital east-west link for trade and tourism, so we need to ensure it is in good operating condition,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Shirley Bond. “This project is part of the $38 million that will be invested this year to improve Highways 3 and 3A to enhance the safe and efficient flow of people and goods.”

The work will involve a six-kilometre section of Highway 3 from Paulson Bridge east to the westbound brake check, and is expected to begin this summer and finish by late August. Motorists may expect some single-lane alternating traffic, and work will take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. For road conditions and traffic updates, visit Drive BC.
