Geotechnical investigation taking place on Highway 29 near Fort St. John
FORT ST. JOHN -- According to DriveBC, crews are conducting a geotechnical investigation on Highway 29.
The investigation is being held between Halfway River Bridge and Upper Cache Rd. The stretch is about four kilometres in length.
The investigation aims to determine the status of the road, recommend any changes to the foundation or note any construction needed.
According to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, it’s a part of routine highway monitoring and project prioritization. It will inform future planning and design to enhance highway reliability and safety throughout the corridor. The project is ongoing over the next two years.
There is single-lane alternating traffic in the area. DriveBC says there may be single-lane closures in some locations due to the removal or replacement of the shoulder barrier or as equipment moves.
The investigation will be completed on September 15 at 7 p.m.
