Construction repairs are underway on a pedestrian bridge over Scriber Creek in Brier damaged in 2007; work is expected to be completed by mid-December.
“Rebuilding the Scriber Creek Bridge will protect salmon-bearing waters, critical infrastructure, a pedestrian pathway and the public health,” said Brier City Planner Nicole Gaudette. In addition to providing pedestrian access, the bridge carries a sewer pipe over Scriber Creek.
Interwest Construction is upgrading the bridge located in the 21000 block of Oak Way and 21st Avenue West. Brier city officials are hoping that the non-profit organization Adopt-A-Stream will assist in the restoration and stabilization of the stream bank in the area of the bridge.
The $550,000 project is being paid for with a 2012 state supplemental capital budget grant.
