A joint venture of Flatiron Construction and Aecon has been selected by Alberta Transportation to construct the Peace River Bridge structure and carry out twinning of Highway 2, including 1.6km through the town of Peace River.

The new bridge will carry the Highway 2 westbound lanes over the Peace River. The project also includes the partial construction of two interchanges, secant pile retaining walls, mechanically stabilised earth walls and three new overpass structures.

Construction activity is anticipated to begin in October and conclude in October 2020.
