An old wooden bridge in the Williams Lake River Valley Trail is being replaced due to safety concerns related to the five-tonne load limit with the existing structure.
The replacement structure is a used bridge that meets all existing highway axle loading and safety standards, says the Ministry of Forests Lands and Resource Operations.
Due to the work, the bridge will be closed Aug. 27 through Aug. 31, although staff said there’s a possibility work will be completed a day ahead of schedule, on Thursday Aug. 30.
The closure is expected to affect about 19 residents of the Moore Mountain area.
Steps have been taken to ensure these resident have continued access to their homes.
