Attend a public information session on the Rainbow Valley Bridge Rehabilitation

You are invited to attend a public information session regarding the upcoming rehabilitation of the Rainbow Valley Access Bridge (Entrance to Snow Valley).

Bridge work will include:

  • Removal of the existing surfacing and replacement with a concrete overlay;

  • Addition of new bridge barriers;

  • Addition of new deck joints;

  • Repair of deteriorated concrete;

  • Repair of severe erosion at the bridge headslope;

  • Addition of vegetated rock rip-rap to control creek bank erosion;

  • Improvements to the roadway geometry and trail connections;

  • Replacement of deteriorated curb and gutter for improved drainage.

User Impacts:

  • Single lane traffic will be maintained on the bridge.  Lane closure will occur in two stages to allow continued local traffic access. Each stage involves closing half the bridge for construction while the other half maintains one lane of bi-directional traffic controlled with temporary traffic signals;

  • Pedestrians and cyclists will be accommodated on the bridge during construction.

Construction is scheduled to begin in May 2017 with completion by October 2017.
