Cache Creek to the Rockies Program

1998 - 2002; Project Value: $600+ Million

Project Summary:

The Cache Creek to the Rockies program consisted of a series of projects identified as priorities in the Trans Canada Highway Corridor Management Plan.  The program was jointly developed by the BC Ministry of Transportation's Major Projects group in Victoria and the Ministry’s Thompson-Okanagan Regional Office in Kamloops, with stakeholder consultation led by Jack Stuempel.  While the program was de-consolidated for a period of time, project delivery is ongoing under the current Highway 1 - Kamloops to Alberta - Four-laning program.


Results: Dialogue with municipalities and community/stakeholder groups ensured the identification of issues and opportunities, and was instrumental in identifying project options and priorities.  Support for project components was generally high, and despite initial skepticism, stakeholders were particularly – and vocally - supportive of the engagement process.
