Revelstoke, British Columbia – An important bridge on a section of the Trans-Canada Highway in British Columbia will be replaced.

The Clanwilliam Bridge over the Canadian Pacific Railway mainline west of Revelstoke will be replaced and the adjacent highway widened to improve the safety of the Trans-Canada Highway through the area.

A new four-lane crossing will replace the existing two-lane bridge. As part of the project, the bridge approaches will also be straightened to improve sightlines, and approximately 2.3 km of Highway 1 leading up to the bridge will be reconstructed and widened to four lanes.

The $29 million project will begin in mid-July with completion scheduled for the fall of 2012.
