Salmon River Bridge Closure this Weekend
Prince George, B.C. – If you are planning on travelling to or from Prince George on highway 97 north this weekend, you need to know the Salmon River Bridge will be closed for a time.
On Saturday, the 19th, the bridge will be closed from 10 pm to 6 am the following morning to allow crews to move it from its current location to the detour location.
The detour crossing will be in place until the new bridge is completed, but even after it has been moved, traffic can expect there will be, at times, single lane alternating flow .
Plans are in place to allow emergency vehicles to cross should there be an emergency.
The new bridge will have two full lanes, highway shoulders and a pedestrian crossing. It is expected to be completed in the fall of next year.
