Overview

Located on the Trans-Canada Trail, this 64m (210ft) footbridge spans the Tulameen River at Princeton. The two new 105ft (32m) timber bridge spans were set down onto the existing piers of the Old Kettle Valley Railway Bridge. The prefabricated bridge deck panels are suspended by steel rods from twinned glulam tied arches and are covered by an undulating steel roof deck on sawn timber purlins. The two spans were assembled on the river bank, and erected in one morning.
