The busy section of Highway 99 from Harrow Road near Pemberton to the Lillooet River bridge is a disaster waiting to happen.
The narrow and eroded shoulder drops off precipitously to deep ditches, which are death traps and serve no drainage purposes. Vehicle speed limit is 80 km/h. There have been close calls to pedestrians and bikers.
This section of road has already been identified in the Trails Master Plan and Area C OCP as a commuter cycling route. There are solutions.
It would take cooperation from adjacent landowners and MOTI, requiring political will and coordination from local government. But will it take a casualty to bring that about?
