A highway widening project that involves building a new bridge and adding two lanes to the Trans-Canada Highway through Salmon Arm, B.C. has been awarded to Springline Construction Services Ltd.

The $29.7 million contract is one part of a wider $1.04 billion initiative to expand the Trans-Canada, or Highway 1, to four lanes between Kamloops and the Alberta border.

The joint federal-provincial announcement Aug. 31 covers construction of a new bridge over the Salmon River, the widening of 2.2 kilometres of highway through the city in the B.C. Interior and several related upgrades.

Work on the project is scheduled to begin this fall.
