KAMLOOPS — The provincial Ministry of Transportation is widening a busy Trans Canada Highway off-ramp in Kamloops.

The ministry says work has begun to improve exit 370 to Notre Dame Drive and Summit Drive.

The $1.1-million project will add a dedicated turn lane to the ramp.

It will also result in three lanes for drivers at the Summit Drive intersection: one for vehicles continuing onto Notre Dame Drive, and one each for drivers turning left and right onto Summit Drive.

According to the ministry, the project is being completed by local contractors and should wrap up by next spring.
