WHEREAS the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway 16 is the only east-west highway connecting communities in Northern BC and has insufficient passing lanes along most of its length;
AND WHEREAS Highway 16 is critical for the economic development of the region and province, especially in providing access to the Asia-Pacific:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Yellowhead Highway Association, NCLGA and UBCM call upon the Provincial and Federal governments to implement a comprehensive and phased program for “3-Laning” the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Highway 16 within BC.
