Quartz Creek Bridge project details

The Province has committed $1.04 billion to upgrading Highway 1 between Kamloops and the Alberta border over the next three years under Budget 2020.

The Highway 1 four-laning project will improve safety and reliability of the highway for people travelling along this corridor.

  • The total budget for the Quartz Creek Bridge project is approximately $123.7 million with the Government of Canada contributing up to $49.9 million through the New Building Canada Fund-Provincial Territorial Infrastructure Component-National and Regional Projects, while the Province of British Columbia is providing $73.8 million.
  • The project will include:
    • replacing the existing two-lane Quartz Creek Bridge with a new 185-metre, four-lane structure to improve intersection access and achieve a 100-km/h design standard;
    • four-laning 4.4 km of Highway 1; and
    • access improvements to forest service roads.
  • This project will be delivered under the Province’s Community Benefits Agreement (CBA).
  • BC Infrastructure Benefits is responsible for implementing the CBA for the project and will be the employer for most of the skilled workforce on the project.
