It's amazing how slow the projects have been around Williams Lake. The 2 km widening south of 150 Mile House took several years. All they would have had to do is leave the existing lanes in place and twin it by putting two lanes beside it, but nope, they wanted just add a lane on each side, which meant ripping up the entire road to put a wider separation in the middle. It rained hard a few times at the wrong time, which washed out the project.

The current project closer to Williams Lake is taking several years because of delays with the fires, but should be open in the Spring.

Phase 2 of the Cariboo Connector is almost complete. This adds 30 more km of 4 lane highway to 430km long highway. Also, it adds extra traffic lights, so no time is actually saved.

So it took a decade to add 30 km of lanes to the highway. Phase 3 is yet to be announced, but at this pace my grand children not yet born will be dead by the time the entire highway is widened.
