PIC #2 Highway 17 Twinning: Section 2

Public Information Centre #2 (Section 2)

Following a detailed route evaluation using input received through public engagement and discussions with Indigenous communities, the project team has recommended a preferred alternative to establish a four-lane divided Highway 17, within the limits for Section 2. The recommended preferred alternative focuses on minimizing impacts to Indigenous communities, stakeholders, and the environment. The PIC provided an opportunity to review and provide input and comment on the recommended preferred alternative. The materials presented at the PIC also provided an overview of the evaluation process that was undertaken, as well as the proposed project access roads.
