MOTI Implements TraC’s Highway 101 Shoulder Paving Priorities (At Least Partly)

Thank you MOTI!

You’ve probably already noticed the improvements on Highway 101. While these are not the separated bike lanes we would love to see they are certainly very welcome improvements! Our local MOTI management received stimulus funding for these shoulder improvements. This funding was a significant increase from previous years. MOTI chose a high quality treatment, paving of the entire shoulder rather than being seamed in the middle, which makes a much better riding surface. Much of the work aligns with the priorities identified in our 2020 Active Transportation Priorities report, which is great to see. There are still some problematic sections between Gibsons and Sechelt but the Sunshine Coast has received more 101 improvements than it has for years, so a big thank you to MOTI for the work.
