No plans to make Haisla Boulevard a provincial highway, says ministry

The Ministry of Transportation says they have no plans to consider making Haisla Boulevard a provincial highway.

Would the Ministry of Transportation ever take on Haisla Boulevard as a provincial highway?

Not anytime soon, according to the Ministry.

Highway 37S, as it enters Kitimat, becomes Haisla Boulevard, a municipally maintained road.

Once the road reaches approximately the rail crossing near Rio Tinto Alcan it becomes RTA property.

Ministry spokesperson Kate Trotter said their position right now is for the road responsibilities to remain unchanged.

“The ministry will continue to work with the District of Kitimat and road stakeholders to determine the best roles and responsibilities for the maintenance and upkeep of roads and highways in and around Kitimat,” she added.
