A design change by B.C. Hydro in the placement of their new power poles over the Coquihalla River triggered a delay in the Kawkawa Lake Road bridge construction project. On seeing the new plans, Telus and Shaw Cable saw a now cost-effective opportunity to rejigged their own plans, allowing their thick black cables to be buried out of sight instead of strung above ground. The new underground conduit was laid late last week along Kawkawa Lake Road. Next step for the bridge construction project will be the completion of the Kawkawa Lake Road approaches, followed by the building of the Union Bar Road approach.
