Today council will decide the fate of the Niska Road bridge. Keep it open with a new 2 lane bridge? Close it? Or perhaps there may be other ideas to consider?
There has been a lot of talk about this bridge by the adjoining community, our staff, the media and even comments from across the city.
It’s a mix of comments I’ve received. For a few months it had been mostly correspondence to keep it one lane only or close it. Yet many within the community, who are now hearing about the possibly of the bridge closing for the first time, are sending correspondence to keep it open and go with 2 lanes.
There are approximately 4600 vehicles that cross that bridge on a daily basis already.
We’ll see what happens. Meeting starts at 6pm tonight at city hall. Here’s the report.
