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 wood bridge deck is suspended by steel rods from twinned glulam arches and is covered by an undulating steel roof deck on sawn timber purlins.
