FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has awarded a contract to construct a two-lane realignment of a segment of Highway 29 and replace the Halfway River Bridge northwest of Fort St. John.

According to the Government, a $104.6-million construction contract was awarded to Eiffage-Infracon Halfway River Joint Venture.

Work includes 3.7 kilometres of a new two-lane highway and the construction of a new one kilometre-long bridge crossing the Halfway River, about 500 metres north of the current structure.
