MLA Bill Bennett and MP David Wilks were pleased to announce the completion of the Loop Bridge on Highway 3 near Corbin last week.

The project, at a price of over 12 million dollars encompasses four different developments to ensure maximum motorist safety on that section of highway. “At this location, the last level rail crossing on Highway 3 between Cranbook and the Alberta Border was removed and an elevated crossing was put over the railway, this will improve safety and reduce travel times,” said Bennett.  “The aged Loop Bridge was replaced, and sections of Highway 3 and Corbin Road were realigned to ensure ease of traffic flow.”

 

The Loop Bridge Project began in July of 2009 and after delays due to problems with contractors the project has finally been completed almost 10 months late. “With so many people travelling on this road and Coal Mountain Mine traffic driving on the Corbin Road, the completion of this project is symbolic and significant,” said Bennett.
