Sechelt, British Columbia – B.C. is widening another section of Highway 101 on the Sunshine Coast to provide pedestrians and cyclists with a safer route for travel.

A $900,000 contract has been awarded to widen the highway between Bay Road and Nestman Road in Sechelt. The work includes adding a 1.5-metre paved shoulder along the northbound lane and improving the drainage.

Construction is expected to begin in early February and finish by the end of April.

Last July, the province spent $2.6 million to widen the highway between Nestman Road and Selma Park Road, which included resurfacing the northbound lane and repairing the drainage.
