The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's Jennifer Fraser answers questions from Fred Busch during the ministry's community engagement meeting on options to replace the Bruhn Bridge held at the recreation centre on Nov. 15.

Province extends Sicamous’ deadline for feedback on Bruhn Bridge replacement

Survey deadline extended to Dec. 15, public input until Jan. 15, 2017.

Sicamous residents have more time to provide input on replacement options for the Bruhn Bridge.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced Thursday morning, Dec. 1, that the deadline for the public to provide input on the Bruhn Bridge replacement project has been extended to Jan. 15, 2017. The same applies to the ministry’s survey on the project.

The survey, as well as information presented by ministry staff at the Nov. 15 public open house, are available online at www.gov.bc.ca/bchwy1-projects.

The ministry says it extended the deadlines after receiving requests from the community for additional time to provide feedback.

“The project is early in the planning stages and all feedback from this public engagement will be considered as the ministry moves forward with planning,” states a MOTI news release.

Technical, environmental and financial information, as well as feedback from local government and First Nations, will be part of the ministry’s considerations.

“Results of this public engagement will be posted online and shared with the District of Sicamous to help the municipality frame its own discussion with the community on all of the considerations,” says the ministry.

Consultation will continue throughout the project and comments or concerns may be sent to the ministry at any time beyond the current public engagement period by emailing rwbruhnbridge@gov.bc.ca.
