The M.D. of Smoky River No. 130 and its partners will review five options for the old High Prairie bridge. Replacing that bridge could cost as much as $12 million.
Kevin Cymbaluk, the director of operations for the M.D. of Smoky River No. 130, discussed this as part of his report to council during their meeting on January 16. Alberta Transportation, Big Lakes County and the M.D. of Greenview are among the partners reviewing the options.
