What is this engagement about?
The Trans-Canada Highway 1 RW Bruhn Bridge and Approaches Project involves four laning of Highway 1 in Sicamous including replacement of the RW Bruhn Bridge. The project extends along Highway 1 west of Old Sicamous Road to east of Silver Sands Road, and includes intersection improvements/turn-lanes at Old Sicamous Road, Old Spallumcheen Road, Gill Avenue and Silver Sands Road. This project is part of the Highway 1 Kamloops to Alberta Four-Laning Program.
In November 2016, three bridge replacement options were presented to the public at an open house. Read about the results of that initial engagement here or the full engagement summary here.
The February 1 open house was to build on the public feedback from the initial open house along with technical work and input from local government and First Nations. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is in the preliminary design phase and has two bridge-replacement options. The open house will seek input from the public on these two options. This input will help inform the ministry before it selects one of the two options to construct.
If you were unable to attend the session but still want to learn about the project, all open house materials are posted here.
The public information session was held on February 1, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Sicamous and District Recreation Centre 1121 Eagle Pass Way, Sicamous, B.C. Anyone wanting more information about the project was welcome to attend and provide feedback before February 18, 2018 via a email and mail.
How can my contribution make a difference?
The feedback received at this open house will help inform the ministry as it moves forward to select an improvement option.
A summary report which details all the comments and feedback submitted from stakeholders will be posted to the site following public engagement. Please check back to review the summary report when posted. This public feedback, as well as local government, First Nations and stakeholder input, will be considered by the ministry along with technical, environmental and financial information in selecting a preferred design option.
