The Port of Prince Rupert has announced work on the highly anticipated Fairview-Ridley Connector Corridor has reached a new milestone. The roadway which will connect the Fairview Terminal with Ridley Island is now 75 percent complete.
  
 Kurt Slocombe, Vice President of Operations and Planning, said the project is considered one of the more important ones in the region because of the opportunity to remove a lot of container truck traffic that flows through the downtown core. 
 
 “Secondly, it also allows us to open up different lands on Ridley Island. As a port, we prided ourselves on having the lowest carbon footprint. We continue to strive to be the lowest or amongst the lowest footprints in ports in all of North America.”
 
 Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, crews from the Coast Tsimshian Northern Contractors Alliance have safely worked 24-hours a day on rotating shifts to build this critical piece of infrastructure.
 
 The Connector Corridor is a five-kilometer road stretching along the southwestern edge of Kaien Island. It will be restricted to only Port activities. 
 
 The 115 million dollar project will be fully activated when DP World’s Fairview Terminal expansion is completed in 2022.
