Bridge is located within the Nisga'a Memorial Lava Bed Provincial Park

The provincial government will be replacing the Ksi Sii Aks (Tseax) Bridge on Highway 113.

“Replacing this bridge on Highway 113 is a priority for the Nisga’a Lisims Government and I’m pleased to announce that work will get underway next spring,” said provincial transportation minister Todd Stone today.

“This project is also a priority for the ministry as part of our B.C. on the Move commitment to repair and replace our bridges to increase safety for everyone travelling on them.”

The bridge is located on Highway 113 within the Nisga’a Memorial Lava Beds Park, approximately 80 kilometres northwest of the junction of Highway 16 and Highway 113 in Terrace.

The existing single-lane structure will be replaced with a new two-lane clear-span bridge crossing the Ksi Sii Aks (Tseax) River.

Work is expected to start next spring and be completed by next fall.

Another important improvement the ministry has made on Highway 113 is upgrading the winter maintenance classification level, meaning more maintenance and quicker response times on the highway.

The change took effect last winter and since then there have been more frequent patrols, and more snow removal and salt and sand applications on the highway.
