Following a routine inspection, the Quick Bridge on Quick Station Road south of Telkwa has been closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
The ministry is currently assessing the structure. Bridge engineers will be on site early next week to complete a detailed inspection to determine next steps.
A short detour is available to residents of Quick who can access Telkwa and Highway 16 via Lawson Road.
There is currently no estimate for when the structure will reopen.
Drivers are reminded to follow posted speed limits, traffic-control devices and flag persons. For the most up-to-date information before travel, visit: www.DriveBC.ca
