An aluminum trussed bridge has been designed for the proposed pedestrian link across Reay Creek. In order to span the high-water mark in a 200-year event, a multi-span bridge is proposed with a segment of approximately 4 meters and 18 meters respectively. The environmental sensitivity of the site has required additional protection measures to obtain Provincial permitting under the Water Sustainability Act. The District is pleased to have recently received permitting approval from the Province, however it is ‘project-delivery’ restricted due to wildlife protection requirements and a short working construction window. Accordingly, construction procurement will be delayed until early 2024 to ensure environmental protection measures are in place and a competitive construction procurement is obtained.
