Traffic flows smoothly over Highway 1 improvements on Tuesday.


$2.7 million contract has been awarded to Lafarge Canada to resurface an 11 kilometre stretch of Highway 1 in Chilliwack. This will result in a smoother, safer ride for all motorists.


"A well-maintained highway system is essential for motorists passing through the Fraser Valley, whether they are local residents, tourists, or commercial truck drivers. These improvements will help ensure people and goods are able to move through Chilliwack safely and efficiently," said Chilliwack MLA John Les in a release on Tuesday.

  • Timely resurfacing eliminates surface deficiencies such as cracks and potholes, which can lower the lifespan of the road and increase future maintenance costs.

  • An improved road surface enhances the safety of the highway for all motorists.
