What’s 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 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.
