The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has resumed site work to help evaluate the options for improving safety and replacing the existing two-lane RW Bruhn Bridge on Highway 1 in Sicamous.
Starting today, residents and motorists may see activity along the highway right-of-way. This work is not expected to affect traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Initial field work began last fall. Together with current activity within the proposed project limits, this will provide additional technical information, as the ministry continues to evaluate options for the replacement of the RW Bruhn Bridge.
The RW Bruhn Bridge Replacement Project is part of the ministry’s four-laning program for Highway 1 between Kamloops and the Alberta border. In Budget 2018, the Province committed $464 million to this program over the next three years.
