Construction on the project was underway in the fall of 2018, with a large amount of the grading accomplished. However, due to weather constraints, construction will be postponed through the winter and resumed in the spring of 2019.
This project will improve the existing grade of the section of CR 72 that runs east of the Fraser tubing hills and south of the railroad underpass. Its current 13-14% grade will be lowered to a 7-8% grade.
Access to The Drop will be relocated to the east side next spring following completion of the road realignment.
