The Government of the Northwest Territories wants Behchoko residents to be informed about the proposed plans to replace the Frank Channel Bridge located on HWY 3.

A government issued press release says the Department of Infrastructure will be hosting an engagement session in to discuss the replacement project for the bridge and to gain input from Tlicho community.

Although the territorial government  has acknowledged that the current bridge, built in the 1960’s is structurally safe to use, it plans on constructing a new bridge that has wider lanes, improved visibility and better overhead clearance.

The session will be held on Wednesday, June 6th at the Ko` Gocho Centre in Behchoko at 5:00pm.
