The Good Bridge replacement project is complete, providing people who live and work in the North Peace region with safe and reliable travel along Cecil Lake Road for years to come.
“Good Bridge is a vital piece of infrastructure for the Peace, helping connect local people and goods within the region and to the rest of B.C.,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. “In addition to supporting the province’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring safe and reliable movement through the Peace will support local communities and businesses for decades into the future.”
The new two-lane bridge, just west of the community of Goodlow, is approximately 500 metres north of the previous crossing over Alces River, a tributary of the Peace River. It is a clear-span structure without supports in the river. This minimizes environmental impacts, especially on wildlife and their habitats. The increased load capacity supports greater access for commercial and industrial traffic and the wider shoulders provide a safer active-transportation route for cyclists and pedestrians.
Cecil Lake Road is important to the North Peace side-road network, running more than 60 kilometres between Rose Prairie Road and the B.C.-Alberta border. Cecil Lake Road connects rural communities to Highway 97 and is typically used by more than 1,500 vehicles per day in the summer.
Fort St. John-based contractor S. Young Enterprises Ltd. completed the construction of the $10.2-million project, providing good jobs for 14 local employees. The 42-metre crossing has a projected lifespan of 75 years.
