Big contributions from the provincial and federal government will be going towards the Fort Nelson River Bridge. Up to $17.5 million will be coming in federal funding and $22 million will be put towards the project in provincial funding.
A major high corridor upgrade is in the works that will increase the safety of travellers while improving traffic flow.
The single lane bridge will be converted to a two lane bridge. To accommodate the work upgrades will also be made to the piers, abutments, and piles.
Federal funding falls under the New Building Canada Plan.
