The land between Clinton and Prince George is almost prairie like. It's some of the easiest land in Canada to build highways on. It's mostly rolling hills with lots of open grassland. The last little bit to Cache Creek is a little tougher, but still nothing compared to what the Trans Canada goes though from the Alberta border to Hope.

If putting the lanes together is better, why do they separate the lanes on "interstates" and most freeways in Canada?
