Take another route instead of Briar Ridge Road Bridge

With countless bridges in the region, and many still washed out – Pouce Coupe Mayor Lorraine Michetti says the province of British Columbia and Ministry of Transportation have bigger projects on the mind than the Briar Ridge Road Bridge south of Pouce.

“We are getting some complaints, however we are telling people that this is a provincial responsibility and that there are other routes that can be taken for now,” she said.

“People are still stranded right now in other areas – this is just not a priority right now.” 

Michetti said the Pouce Coupe and Dawson Creek fire departments have already collaborated on a plan with the bridge still not open.

“People are worried about the potential of fires, but the fire departments are on it.”
