Kamloops is looking at another bridge crossing the Thompson River.
“It has been considered, and is being considered this next year,” City Development Services Director Marvin Kwiatkowski said. “We’re working on that second bridge, looking at a feasibility study as far as location goes.”
“Part of the discussion has been for the last three to four years on basically a ring road where we could come up though say the Domtar property and connect to the highway.”
Douncillor Denis Walsh is a little worried about commercial traffic.
“We’ve always talked about a second bridge access. We’ve dropped the Singh St. bridge,” he added. “We’ve always had the problem about heavy trucks coming though our city because there’s nowhere else to go to get to Domtar or to get to the airport.”
Now, another bridge across the Thompson River is not envisioned for another 20 years.
