What is this engagement about?
The Province of B.C. is planning for the future of Taylor Bridge. The bridge is an important link in B.C.’s economy and connects the North and South Peace regions via Taylor, B.C. Taylor Bridge is essential for the movement of people, goods and services. Approximately 7,500 vehicles cross the bridge per day, with 30 per cent of that being commercial vehicle traffic. Built in 1960, the bridge is maintained as a safe crossing for all users but is nearing the end of its useful life.
The Province is now launching the first phase engagement and is seeking input from bridge users, industry, interest groups, local residents and the citizens of B.C. on how they use the bridge today and their concerns for the future.
Virtual open houses are scheduled for October 13th (completed) and October 21st(completed) . Anyone interested in providing input can register for one of these sessions at https://engage.gov.bc.ca/taylorbridge. Visitors to the site can also learn more about the project and complete the online survey to submit feedback.
Feedback will be accepted until 4pm (PT) on November 15th, 2021.
How can my contribution make a difference?
Community members will have the opportunity to contribute non-technical feedback that will inform the work underway to develop concepts for the future of Taylor Bridge. Following the public engagement sessions and detailed analysis of all feedback received, the What We Heard report will be released. This is expected to take place in winter/spring 2022.
