Minor delays on the Trans-Canada Highway west of the R.W. Bruhn Bridge are expected as preliminary site work begins within the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's right-of-way.
Construction signage indicated October 7, 2021, as the start date for the work; however, project manager Jonathan Melvin says crews won't be mobilizing until later this week.
The scope of work to facilitate utility relocations includes:
- Tree clearing west of Bruhn Bridge, both to the north and south of the existing highway,
- Minor danger tree clearing immediately to the north of the CP Rail tracks, roughly across from Gill Avenue; and the
- Construction of two, temporary, utility-access roads off Old Sicamous Road which is required for utility relocations.
Traffic on Highway 1 west of the Bruhn Bridge will be impacted by single lane alternating traffic (SLAT) and 15-minute closures. Please follow DriveBC for regular updates.
