Coquihalla Phase 3: Okanagan Connector
From politicians to project supervisors to sub-contractors to tourism personnel, there are few negative words regarding this much-touted road; known in the B.C. interior as the long-awaited Okanagan Connector. There is talk of how contractors stayed within budget (to the satisfaction of the taxpayers); of how highways ministry personnel prioritized and co-operated in environmental matters; of the excellent engineering; and of the economic benefits that will travel this wide ribbon of highway.
