By Andrew Macklin
April 1, 2016 – The bridge to link the north and south portions of the Site C Dam construction has been completed.
According to an article from the Alaska Highway News, BC Hydro announced that the 329-metre bridge connecting the worksites on the north and south bank of the Peace River was completed on time and on schedule.
However, local residents have asked the province to consider making the temporary bridge a permanent structure. There are currently three crossings utilized by residents in nearby Fort St. John and Chetwynd. However, the Mayor of Chetwynd has suggested that a permanent bridge could cut travel times between the twocities in half.
