Work will soon be underway to upgrade the Sande Street overhead bridge in Terrace, announced Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone.
“Improving the overhead bridge at Sande Street was a priority project for this community and part of our B.C. on the Move commitment to invest $180 million over the next three years to repair and replace provincial bridges,” said Stone. “We also recently completed work at the Sande/Keith intersection, so all of these improvements will mean increased safety and reliability for both residents and commercial traffic travelling through this area on a daily basis.”
A $1.06-million contract for the project was awarded to Kingston Construction Ltd. of Surrey. Work will include resurfacing the bridge deck to improve the running surface and preserve the existing bridge superstructure.
The total cost of the project is $1.5 million and is scheduled to be completed at the end of October.
B.C. on the Move is the B.C. government’s 10-year plan for the improvement of the province’s transportation network. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will invest almost $2.7 billion over the next three years to improve British Columbia’s transportation network.
