Quesnel you need to show your support to get the heavy truck traffic out of the downtown area.

Want Trucks off Front Street??

If you truly want a new Highway 97 route through the City then you MUST show up at the Seniors Centre on Monday February 19th anytime between 3 and 7 pm. We need to show OVERWHELMING community support for the proposal that the Ministry of Tranportation and the City of Quesnel have developed.

The proposed route is along the current railway line. It would involve two new four lane bridges built just upriver (toward Cariboo Pulp) from the current location; one over the Quesnel River and the other over the rail tracks. These bridges would be able to accomodate oversized vehicles. A four lane interconnector highway would then run parallel to the railway from the new bridges and connect directly to two mile flat at the location where Super Save Gas currently sits. There would be a controlled intersection on the City side of the bridges and at the junction with two mile flat; otherwise the interconnector would be a straight through road with no intersections and minimal grades. This would improve air quality in the downtown core.

The proposed interconnector would take 100% of the commercial truck traffic off Front, Carson, and Legion -- which would become City roads and would be restricted to local truck traffic only. This has the potential to completely transform our downtown core!

This is a real opportunity that has the support of the downtown business community. We now need to show the Ministry the fullness of the community support for this route.

Also on the table is a fix to the Racing & Hydraulic Road intersections that the Ministry wants your feedback on.

Please spread the word and let's get as many people in Quesnel to show up between 3pm and 7 pm next Monday to show the new Minister that we want this project to proceed.

Brigette Lacquette - 1st First Nations women athlete to be selected for Team Canada Women’s Olympic Hockey Team. 👍🇨🇦

Picture day for Brigette Lacquette, a member of Cote First Nation in Saskatchewan. She is the 1st First Nations woman athlete to ever be selected for Canada's women's Olympic hockey team. She says watching Nunavut's Jordin Tootoo play for Team Canada in the 2003 World Junior Championships was an inspiration.
