Port Alice Signage on Hold

A request to update Highway 19 mileage signs north of Campbell River to include Port Alice is on hold for the moment

Updating of the Highway 19 mileage signs heading north of Campbell River to include the distance to Port Alice is on hold for the moment. Port Alice Mayor Jan Allen sent a letter to the Provincial government on Jan. 28, stating that there are “approximately three signs that indicate the mileage to Port Alice. Ideally, Port Alice would be listed on every sign which lists Port Hardy.”

Tallina McRae, district operations technician & area manager for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Vancouver Island District, replied that “the type of changes you are requesting are implemented through regional sign programs dictated by our provincial sign shops in Kamloops. At this time there is a guide sign update program in the works, but on hold temporarily. Should this proceed, I’ll review your request at that time.” McRae’s correspondence was received and filed by the Port Alice Village Council.
