B.C. bridge replacement starts this summer in Hemlock Valley

B.C. bridge replacement starts this summer in Hemlock Valley
PROVINCE OF B.C. — This summer crews led by Dorosh Construction will work to replace the Chehalis River Bridge near Hemlock Valley, B.C.

HEMLOCK VALLEY, B.C. — Crews will work this summer to replace B.C.’s Chehalis River Bridge on Morris Valley Road.

The bridge serves as a critical route for Hemlock Valley residents, visitors and those living in the surrounding area.

The $7.3-million contract for the project has been awarded to Dorosh Construction Ltd. of Langley. Construction is expected to begin in July and be completed by fall 2022.

The old single-lane bridge will be demolished and removed upon completion of the new structure.

“The replacement of the old single-lane bridge over the Chehalis River will be a big improvement for the many people who rely on Morris Valley Road,” said Kelli Paddon, MLA for Chilliwack-Kent, in a statement. “The new two-lane bridge will make travel safer and will serve area residents for many years to come.”

The current Chehalis River Bridge is a single-lane timber structure, built in 1950, approximately six kilometres north of Highway 7 on Morris Valley Road.

The new two-lane, three-span structure will be 96 metres long. It will be constructed on the downstream side of the existing bridge. The new bridge will feature a sidewalk to improve access for pedestrians and cyclists and new bridge approaches will be constructed to tie into the existing roadway.
