I'm all for highway improvements in the area, but I have to wonder, is there that much traffic coming west on the #1 to warrant that kind of infrastructure ? Anyone coming via Northern Alberta would go hwy 16, and even from southern Alberta it'd probably be faster to travel north on hwy 2 to Edmonton and go west from there.

If they're expecting that kind of volume increase on 97 from Cache Creek to PG then inevitably they're going to need to consider upgrades to the old Hwy 1 through the canyon as well

FWIW, I drive 16/5/24 from Edmonton to just east of 100 Mile house all the time, and with the exception of long weekends generally the traffic is not too bad
