A Penticton company has won two contracts worth millions to repave stretches of Highway 3 near Princeton.
Peter’s Bros Construction Ltd. of Penticton was the successful bidder for two projects: a $5.33-million contract and a $1.98-million contract.
“Highway 3 is an important west-east travel route in British Columbia and this resurfacing work will benefit residents, businesses, commercial drivers, and tourists, while protecting our infrastructure at the same time,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone.
Stone said the projects – one west of Princeton near Allison Pass, and the other between Princeton and Bromley Rock Provincial Park – are expected to be complete by the fall.
“These resurfacing projects are key to keeping Highway 3 in top condition for commercial traffic, local residents and tourists,” said Boundary Similkameen MLA Linda Larson.
