This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Farrell Creek bridge will be closed each night for a week starting November 21st.

According to Flatiron field engineer Luke Phillips, they are required to change the joint expansion plates at both abutments due to a design change, resulting in a road closure.

Both lanes on the bridge will be closed from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. beginning Monday, November 21st, until Sunday, November 28th.
