UPDATE: the article was changed to include information from the Ministry of Transportation.
The Kiskatinaw curved bridge is closed for geotechnical investigations after a landslide occurred under the bridge, impacting one of its piers.
The Ministry of Transportation says there is no estimated time of reopening for the bridge.
The bridge will remain closed until the material stops moving and the bridge can be assessed. Geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as operational staff, are assessing the situation.
The provincial park can be accessed through the south side of the Old Alaska Highway.
The bridge, built in the 1940s, is 30 km north of Dawson Creek in Kiskatinaw Provincial Park.
More information will be released once it comes in.
