The focus of the expansion is to four-lane the entire section of roadway, which includes 339 km under the jurisdiction of the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, as well as 101 km under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada. In total, the province has broken down the project into 18 sections to be twinned across the 10-year project.
