OTTAWA, Ont. — Yukon MP, Larry Bagnell, announced join funding of $5.8 million over two years for the rehabilitation of the Teslin River Bridge, located at Johnson’s Crossing.
The project falls under the Canada/Yukon Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program (SHIP) and involves a seismic retrofit and structural strengthening of the bridge to enable it to better withstand the effects of growing traffic and earthquakes.
"The federal contribution of $2.9 million from SHIP will help improve and enhance the safety of Yukon’s highway system," says Transport Minister, David Collenette. "It will be beneficial for residents of this area, as well as for visitors and for trade."
