Kaslo Bridge replacement project complete
PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA—A rendering shows the steel and concrete bridge project in Kaslo, B.C. which has replaced a timber bridge built in 1966.

KASLO, B.C.—A two-lane steel and concrete bridge in Kaslo, B.C. is complete, replacing a two-lane timber bridge built in 1966.

Located at the south entrance to the Village of Kaslo, the replacement bridge has two-metre shoulders and a barrier-separated sidewalk to ensure safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

“Ensuring the province’s highways, roads and bridges meet modern standards of safety and accessibility is a priority for this government. I am pleased that our government is making significant investments in rural transportation infrastructure across the province, like this new bridge in Kaslo,” said Nelson-Creston MLA Brittny Anderson in a statement.

“The Kaslo River Bridge replacement is a wonderful project for our village, providing a safe crossing that pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can rely on for years to come. We were pleased with the community engagement in the design process, and I thank the ministry staff and the contractors for keeping council updated throughout the build. It was great to see some local people involved in the project, too,” Village of Kaslo mayor Suzan Hewat added.

Public consultation about the bridge’s design took place at an open house in November 2019 and the project’s budget was $6.2 million. It was completed by BD Hall Constructors Corp.
