I noticed they're only twinning Hwy 97 north of Cache Creek, what about Vancouver-Cache Creek? I know TCH 1 cannot be twinned due to terrain, otherwise it would have been twinned as opposed to the Coquihalla Hwy being constructed. I've also heard that Hwy 99 north of Whistler would be a massive project.
