British Columbia section: Yellowhead Pass to Prince Rupert
Roads are not in the official geographical names databases
Highway 16 is a highway in British Columbia, Canada. It is an important section of the Yellowhead Highway, a part of the Trans-Canada Highway that runs across Western Canada. The highway closely follows the path of the northern B.C. alignment of the Canadian National Railway. The number “16” was first given to the highway in 1941, and originally, the route that the highway took was more to the north of today’s highway, and it was not as long as it is now.
