The Kootenay Pass will be resurfaced this year from the summit to the east chain-up, the Ministry of Transportation has announced.

A $3.7 million contract has been awarded to Okanagan Aggregates Ltd. of Armstrong. The project also includes resurfacing in the Creston area, the replacement of concrete roadside barriers, and shoulder widening.

Four new avalanche gates will also be installed at the summit to manage traffic during closures.
