Simon Fraser Bridge upgrades to begin this month

Residents of Prince George can expect work on the southbound Simon Fraser Bridge to begin this month.

Upgrades to the bridge will include a full deck replacement, strengthening of the truss and the replacement of the north abutment.

The replacement of the north abutment will increase the current underpass height restriction to allow taller transport trucks to pass underneath.

The shoulders of the road will be widened and the existing railings will also be replaced.

Built in 1963 and twinned in 2009, the bridge serves about 18,000 vehicles daily, explains a news release from the provincial government.

The budget for this project is $20.5 million and a local company, Ruskin Construction Ltd., was awarded the contract.

The project is anticipated to be completed in late 2022.

Traffic will be reduced to two-lane traffic using the northbound side of the bridge.
