Well these upgrades to hwy 97 are not being done due to high volumes on this highway either. The article states that they're doing it to help spur investment and to attract tourists to the area. Really the only bad things about that stretch of 97 are the slow drives through the towns and the logging & chip trucks. Aside for that it's not that busy a road.

I really don't see any point to upgrading hwy 5 either. Whenever I drive it I'm always able to travel at a good clip & there are lots of passing opportunities, unlike many sections of the TCH.
