Davies says the City wants the Province to consider a phased approach for improving the area’s infrastructure deficit and expanding the highway.He does admit the highway’s length means it would be a considerable feat to completely expand. However, he says the City believes the biggest priority lies between Dawson Creek and just north of Fort Nelson because of the number of industrial vehicles that use that stretch of the highway.The next UBCM conference will be held in September. The largest highway into Fort St. John may be expanded, if City Council gets its way.On Monday, Fort St. John City Council approved a list of resolutions to take to the North Central Local Government Association which would then petition the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to ask the Province to become involved.- Advertisement -One of the resolutions included will ask the Ministry of Transportation to consider expanding the Alaska Highway from two lanes to four.It all comes down to safety, says City Councillor and acting Mayor Dan Davies.Davies says around 300,000 vehicles travel the highway each year.[asset|aid=3470|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=b9f04c9102dfadd4005fd88f4f61c45a-Davies Alaska Highway 1_1_Pub.mp3] Advertisement
