While the proposed third crossing of the Thompson River at Singh Street has been shelved, the city of Kamloops is looking at other options.
Speaking on NL Morning News, Development Services Director Marvin Kwiatkowksi says, the bridge wouldn’t be needed until the city’s population reaches 120 thousand.
Kwiatkowski says that’s not expected to happen for another 20 years.
He says the city is looking further, to the west past Singh Street.
“We will be looking at the other corridor further to the west before 20 years are up. The plan even in the next year to look at you know, a high level review of another location.”
The last price tag for the Singh Street crossing was approaching half a billion dollars.
