Bruhn Bridge replacement in Sicamous to support safer and more efficient travels

Sicamous, British Columbia, November 16, 2018Investing in transportation infrastructure is critical to connecting communities and boosting trade and tourism to create good jobs and build a strong economy and middle class.

Today, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Honourable Claire Trevena, Minister of BC Transportation and Infrastructure, announced $224.5 million in joint funding for the replacement of the R. W. Bruhn Bridge along Highway 1 in Sicamous.

This project involves replacing the R. W. Bruhn Bridge, which has surpassed its useful life, with a new structure. Before the end of the year, one of two bridge options will be chosen for construction: a five-lane bridge replacement or a four-lane bridge replacement with a new Main Street bridge, both including improvements to the approach to the bridge.

Once complete, the new R.W. Bruhn Bridge will significantly improve traffic flow and driver safety, providing a reliable efficient crossing along this vital transportation route for residents, visitors and businesses for another 75 years.
