The Government of British Columbia (B.C.) has announced the replacement of the Chehalis River Bridge on Morris Valley Road, which will begin this summer.

Set to begin in July 2021 and anticipated to be completed by fall 2022, the $7.3-million construction contract has been awarded to Dorosh Construction Ltd. of Langley.

The current Chehalis River Bridge, built in 1950, is a single-lane timber structure located approximately 6 kilometers north of Highway 7 on Morris Valley Road. The replacement structure will be a new two-lane, three-span structure approximately 96 meters long and built on the downstream side of the existing bridge.

The replacement, which will include a sidewalk to improve access for pedestrians and cyclists, will also have new bridge approaches so the structure ties into the existing roadway.
