Consultation to begin on replacement for Taylor Bridge after regional consultation and advocating for the project.

On Thursday, November 14th, the provincial government officially announced that they would be beginning the engineering work and consultation process to replace the Taylor Bridge. 

With significant support from various BC Chamber’s, we moved the needle towards government beginning the process of replacing this vital piece of infrastructure, which will impact the provincial economy, and provide the region with a safe and reliable highway network. 

Thank you again to all the partners involved in advocating for this venture. We’re bullish about the important role this bridge will play in moving people and goods throughout the northeastern region.
