The $650 million set aside for four-laning between Kamloops and the Alberta border won't cover every inch of the road along the way.
So the public is being asked for priorities on which of the Trans-Canada Highway projects need to be done over the next 10 years.
But many of the people who showed up for an information session Tuesday evening at Hotel 540 were more curious about four-laning in general than about specific concerns.
"Just curious to see what they're going to be doing for the next 10 years, see where all our money's going. I'd rather them spend money on the highway than a new roof for a football field," said Vic Loring.
"I think it's super once it gets done. We've been promised that before," said Stan Cupello.
Mike Lorimer, regional director with the ministry of transportation, noted that $700 million has been spent on the highway in the past 10 years, and planning is underway for the next decade.
"What we want to hear from people are where are their priorities. We look at the corridor from an engineering perspective . . . but at the end of the day the people that live on that corridor and drive that road every day, they have a different take on things," he said.
"We want to hear, when they're driving with their families, what corners worry them, what intersections worry them."
Another public session is planned for Wednesday in Chase from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Chase Community Centre on Shuswap Avenue.
Four other sessions are in the works for Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Revelstoke and Golden.
