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 requested 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.

This phase of engagement gathered feedback from citizens to help inform options for the Taylor Bridge crossing. Individuals and organizations were invited to share their feedback by completing an online questionnaire or submitting a formal written submission. This opportunity was intended for all residents of British Columbia.
This work will help us understand:
- What is important to those traveling along the Highway 97 Corridor from Dawson Creek to Fort St. John through Taylor
- What is the transportation need for the corridor
Online questionnaire responses and written stakeholder submissions were accepted from October 5, 2021 to November 15, 2021. (This engagement is now closed.)
The input collected will help determine collective interests that need to be considered in developing options for a long-term solution for the Taylor Bridge Crossing.
