On 21st October, Minister of Highways and Public Works Nils Clarke, Deputy Chief of Teslin Tlingit Council Alex Oakley and Mayor of Teslin Gord Curran attended a community celebration of the beginning of work on the new Nisutlin Bay Bridge replacement project.
In May, the contract for the project was awarded to Graham Infrastructure LP for $160 million. This summer Graham Infrastructure LP completed important preparation work to begin building the new bridge and work will continue throughout the year.
The new Nisutlin Bay Bridge will serve as a critical transportation link along the Alaska highway.
Graham Infrastructure LP has committed to prioritizing Yukon-based businesses and citizens during their hiring process for this project.
The project is anticipated to be complete in 2026.
