Deering Bridge Rehabilitation Project

The bridge on Deering Road between Highway 14 and Pacific Marine Road north of Port Renfrew requires substructure upgrades to maintain safety, reliability and extend the life of the crossing.

The one-lane bridge on Deering Road spans the San Juan river and provides a key connection to local communities and people travelling through the area. The underside of the bridge has experienced significant deterioration and requires repair. The crossing must maintain safe and reliable operation until a long-term replacement or alternate route solution for the crossing can be developed.  


Project Benefits

The project will:

  • Rehabilitate the existing elements of the bridge substructure
  • Extend the life of the bridge
  • Improve reliability for users and communities


The project will be divided into two seasons of construction. The proposed construction schedule is August-October 2020 and August-October 2021, subject to change.

Travel Advisories

During construction, bridge closures of up to 30 minutes may be required between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., and up to two hours during night work between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Please be advised that pile-driving may occur during night hours, and this may cause some noise disturbance. Access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times, as necessary.
