Big Sand Creek Bridge to be replaced

The new bridges will replace the current structures that were built in the 1950s and are nearing the end of their life cycle. The new structures will be built to a modern standard designed to service today’s higher traffic volumes. This portion of the highway serves an average of 6,000 vehicles per day.

Highway 3 is a vital east-west route through British Columbia that connects to Alberta. Replacing these bridges will support the commercial, industrial, local and tourist traffic that uses the highway.

Status

The project is currently in the engineering and design phase. There are plans to tender the project in spring 2023.
