Ministry and their partners worked on the planning and design of the clear span bridge for a year and a half prior to the construction that started in May 2015. Seven months later on November 15, 2015 the project was officially completed with the opening of a new 18 metre long clear span, two lane bridge.

Audience:  Government and Public

It is with great pride that I announce the Completed sign will be placed on the construction signs that informed residents and the travelling public of the Heart Creek Fish Passage Improvement Project. The Ministry and their partners have long known about a fish barrier on Heart Creek as a result of several freshets that scoured out the stream bed leaving the approximately 2.5 metre wide culvert perched and restricting fish use to the lower 265 metres of the creek. Ministry and their partners worked on the planning and design of the clear span bridge for a year and a half prior to the construction that started in May 2015. Seven months later on November 15, 2015 the project was officially completed with the opening of a new 18 metre long clear span, two lane bridge. The construction period extended through the Kokanee spawning period and all of the Kokanee navigated through the new channel, under the new bridge, and into a reach of Heart Creek that has not seen Kokanee in 35 years.
