Telkwa Bridge receives new superstructure

TELKWA, B.C. – The Quick bridge in Telkwa, B.C. will receive a new superstructure, replacing the current 100-year-old wooden bridge.

The current bridge was closed to vehicle traffic in June as ministry engineers determined the structure had deteriorated beyond reasonable repair and was no longer safe, a B.C. government release stated.

While several large rehabilitation projects have kept the bridge operational past its 75-year design life, engineering assessments ruled keeping the current structure would require frequent rehabilitation projects while underlying safety and reliability issues remained.

Luxton Construction Inc. has been awarded a $4.3 million contract to replace the bridge with a new steel structure which involves removing the existing single-lane bridge and constructing a new single-lane structure on the existing piers.

Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall and be completed by February 2023.
