Highway improvements planned at Craigellachie

Plans are underway for highway upgrades and a bridge replacement near Craigellachie.

B.C. Ministry of Transportation spokesperson Kate Trotter says plans are in the works to upgrade a roughly three-kilometre section of the Trans-Canada Highway, and to replace the North Fork Bridge over the Perry River near the Skyline Truck Stop in Craigellachie.

Trotter says the ministry is gathering field information and proceeding with ground surveying, geotechnical investigations, environmental assessments. An open house is planned for late spring to show the preliminary plans for the proposed design. There are no cost estimates for the project as of yet.
