New digital variable speed limit signs are coming to one of the key portals to the Lower Mainland.
The Ministry of Transportation says the new system will begin operation in the coming days on a short section of Highway 3 near Hope.
The province says it has installed four of the variable speed signs along seven kilometres of the highway between Hope and the Coquihalla-Highway 3 junction.
B.C. first introduced the variable speed limit signs, which allow officials to alter speed limits when weather and road conditions change, in 2016.
The province says road surface and traffic sensors gather information on conditions to recommend lower speed limits when warranted.
The ministry said the $25-million project included both the installation of the variable speed system and a new congestion-based variable speed limit system on Highway 1 between the Sumas River Bridge and Prest Road overpass.
The Highway 1 system is still undergoing testing, but is expected to be operational in early 2020.
