Expect delays on Kumdis river bridge from Tuesday on

  • Sep. 12, 2014 11:00 a.m.

The Kumdis River Bridge on Highway 16 just north of Port Clements will be subject to long duration delays for re-decking work – Tuesday September 16, through October 15, (unless completed sooner). We expect to maintain Single Lane Alternating Traffic with minimum 30 minute delays from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm weekdays during the project, however there is always the potential for long delays. Delays may be slightly longer for large or heavy trucks as the crew installs additional planks to accommodate the load. Large or heavy trucks should schedule travel through the site before 8:00 am or after 5:00 pm on weekdays to avoid delays.Emergency vehicle access will be provided on a priority basis, there is a potential for a minimal delay to clear the work site and ensure the bridge is safe. There will be no parking for public vehicles near the bridge approaches due to the use of construction equipment at the bridge. We apologize for any inconvenience and will attempt to minimize the disruption to traffic when possible. Please check: http://www.drivebc.ca/ for further updates.
