In November 2018, one of the Bruhn Bridge’s railings was damaged when a semi crashed into it. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure told the Eagle Valley News a temporary fix would be in place by the end of March allowing the bridge’s pedestrian walkway to reopen.

Traffic on the TCH will also be disrupted east of Sicamous due to electrical maintenance on a stretch of the highway running from just east of the Perry River Bridge to a rest area just west of Three Valley Gap. Drivers should expect single lane alternating traffic on portions of the highway from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on weekdays until March 28.
