TAYLOR, B.C. – A pair of virtual open houses are taking place this month to give residents a chance to provide input on the future of the Taylor Bridge.

Anyone wanting to participate in one of the open houses on either October 13th or October 21st can register through the BC government’s website.

The Ministry of Transportation says participants can also learn more about the project and take part in a survey about the bridge through the website.

The survey launched on October 5th and will close on November 15th.

More than 7,500 vehicles drive across the bridge every day, with 30 per cent of the traffic being commercial vehicles, according to the ministry.

The Province created a user group consisting of representatives from industry and local government to discuss future options for the bridge.

The ministry says consultations with local Indigenous communities are ongoing and extensive field investigations are being conducted to contribute to the development of future options for the bridge.
