The City of Kamloops and Thompson Rivers University are looking at building an overpass across the Summit Connector near the intersection of Summit and McGill to the university, for the safety of students.
Appearing on NL Morning News, Kamloops Development Services Director Marvin Kwiatkowski says, the last cost estimate was 5 million dollars in 2012.
“We are exploring options and opportunities and potential funding. So looking at grants and there are some that I will be exploring that are out there. So that’s a key component.”
The Vice President of Finance at TRU Matt Milovick says, its a good plan.
“Where the bridge is intended to go actually is going to drop them right in the heart of campus, so it actually makes a lot of sense create a pathway for students for bicyclists and the community to be able to access the campus and get to the heart of it immediately.”
The discussion about an overpass is on the front burner after an international student in Prince George was struck and killed while walking across Highway 97.
