Dawson Construction, Eagle Rock Construction and the IRL International Truck Centres were proud to take part in a multi-company Amber Lights Tribute in Kamloops Wednesday sponsored by B.C.’s highways maintenance providers.
Escorted by 10 RCMP cruisers, more than 100 trucks from scores of local road maintenance and construction companies joined together to drive by Ponderosa Lodge and Royal Inland Hospital at 7 p.m. to pay tribute to front-line healthcare workers in Kamloops.
The procession of vehicles in Kamloops was one of many similar events across B.C., all organized by the BC Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association to show appreciation for doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers on the front lines of the battle with COVID-19.
All companies “did their part” in the tribute, by limiting the number of people in trucks to one driver and keeping two metres apart as the procession was staged up.
The Kamloops event was led by Kamloops MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar, as well as representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
