Project Description

The Fort Nelson River Bridge stands as a significant testament to collaboration and connectivity within the indigenous territory. Spanning 320m (1051ft) in length and 10m (33ft) in width, this double-wide, highway-standard bridge, anchored on concrete-filled pipe piles, is a pivotal component of the Sierra Yoyo Main project within the indigenous band’s territory. Constructed through a cooperative effort between Hanna Infrastructure Ltd. and Peter Kiewit & Sons, the bridge features pre-cast concrete elements, reflecting a commitment to both structural integrity and cultural sensitivity. Completed in an efficient 6 months, the bridge, officially designated a “P3 Bridge,” was unveiled on November 1, 2004, symbolizing a harmonious blend of modern engineering and indigenous heritage.
