Porcupine River Bridge Design Phase Moves Forward 
Porcupine River Bridge replacement was a priority at last night’s City Council meeting. Council approved an initial $331,939 on the final design and construction contract for the bridge. In this next phase, all design work will be completed and all necessary approvals obtained before bridge construction begins in 2024.

The Porcupine River Bridge was shut down due to safety concerns in November 2021, after engineers determined that the structure was unsafe for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. In early August 2022, Council directed Administration to focus on replacing the bridge, rather than explore a permanent detour.

Once the final design and approvals are in place, bridge construction will still need to be tendered and the contract to initiate work next year will come back to City Council for approval.
