Work to begin on new Foreman Road bridge

Work is expected to start soon on a new bridge on Foreman Road crossing Bittner Creek

The $1.3-million project will replace an existing culvert at the site, which is prone to flooding, according to a statement released by the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

On Monday morning, equipment and a guide vehicle were on site, and brush had been cleared around the crossing, but no work had begun on the roadway itself. 

Once work begins on the crossing, traffic will be diverted to a single-lane temporary bridge north of the site. Drivers in the area should expect some delays.

Construction on the 21.8-metre long, single-lane bridge is expected to be completed by the fall.

The bridge will allow fish more access to habitat in the creek and create a more efficient crossing, the ministry statement said.

The province is working closely with Kingston Construction Ltd. of Surrey and WorkSafeBC to ensure health and safety are maintained for all workers on site.
