Investments provide extra lifeline in emergency
Released by the BC Gov't/Voice file photo
he B.C. Government has invested $400,000 to replace the aging McCombs Drive Bridges. The North and South McCombs Drive Bridges provide an alternate route in and out of Harrison Hot Springs village.
The two aging wood structures have been replaced with new concrete and steel bridges, and include new signage and walking and cycling paths. Both bridges are now open to the public.
"The aging McCombs Drive
Bridges have been a safety concern for many years and as I get ready
to leave my position as MLA for this area, I'm honoured to have been
able to lend a helping hand to make this project a reality," said
Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner. "These new bridges will make the
route safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians for many years,
and I look forward to continuing to visit Harrison with my wife and
daughter, long after I have left public office."
