The Landmark Kilometre Inventory (LKI) is one of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's systems for identifying locations on the Provincial Highway network. It has been in use since before 1978.
LKI location codes are used by police to record and report crashes which occur on Provincial Highways. The Ministry's Collision Information System (CIS) is built upon the LKI. The RCMP and others use the LKI as the basis for locating landmarks along BC highways.
How the LKI Works
The LKI divides the highway network into segments. Each segment has a 4-digit identifier, and a designated start and end point. A segment may consist of one or both sides (directions) of a highway. Landmarks such as intersections and bridges along each segment are listed, along with the measured distance from the start of the segment, and a landmark type code.
CIS users should note
that the Collision Information System will continue to use the July 2011 version of the LKI until early 2013.
An LKI revision history is included at the beginning of the PDF LKI files, and is also available in this MS-Word document.
