Haggith Creek Crossing to Reopen Today

Friday, March 31, 2017 @ 5:45 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Motorists take note – the Haggith Creek crossing on Willow Cale Road will reopen to single-lane alternating traffic today around noon.

The city of Prince George is also expecting final surface details to be concluded and paving completed by early this spring if weather permits.

Work on the $2.78 million Haggith Creek crossing has been underway since the crossing was closed last September. The work has allowed for a new steel girder bridge over Haggith Creek where a culvert beneath the road has deteriorated causing erosion of the road.


Why did this 3 month project take over 7 months to complete?

Should taken three weeks if they had done all their homework and a contractor that knew there stuff.

Their stuff, before I get corrected in spelling

Or maybe they had to take their time in order to prevent a huge landslide into the Fraser by doing proper engineering..Perhaps you guys should discuss this in your little sewing circle..

    The majority of the engineering and geo-technical work should have been completed prior to any onsite work commencing.

    Northman, how close to the Fraser do you think it is? Also seeing that you are so educated on this project. Why not just put another culvert in? 2.87 million is a lot of culverts and labour.

      You just don’t simply put another culvert in especially with the soil types in that area..

And why not? The one that was removed was at least 50 years old. It just corroded to the point of caving in and causing the material above to fall. I am sure that todays engineered culverts could last twice that.
