East Bypass Road renamed to Northern Lights Drive
June 25, 2019
Effective Wednesday, June 26, 2019, the road commonly known as the East Bypass Road will be renamed to Northern Lights Drive.
The City of Fort St. John has been experiencing steady residential growth and development close to the road currently known as the “East Bypass Road.” Because of this, it no longer functions as a bypass road to re-direct traffic around the City and away from urban development.
Although the majority of the road is now within City boundaries, we have received approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to proceed with the road renaming on the portion of the East Bypass Road under their jurisdiction. With this approval complete, the City is now moving forward to complete the road renaming and addressing changes as required.
In April, the City of Fort St. John sent letters by registered mail to all property owners notifying them of this change, if you didn’t receive the letter, please contact the Planning and Engineering Department at 250-787-8150. Council recognizes that the address change, while necessary, may cause some inconvenience to individually affected Property Owners.
