2023 – Victoria Trail bridge


Project Highlights

Repairs to the Victoria Trail bridge are done, and the bridge is open to traffic.


During a routine inspection by Alberta Transportation, a broken truss was discovered on the Sturgeon County bridge. While Alberta Transportation inspects the bridge, maintenance and capital replacement are the County’s responsibilities.

The Victoria Trail Bridge opened in 1931 and is scheduled for replacement in 2028.
