January 30, 2024

As a result of an expression of interest, the RAIC has assembled an independent review panel that will provide professional guidance “throughout the elaboration of design solutions and ensuring that the new bridge design meets the highest possible design standards and incorporates important considerations that Canadians share,” stated a release.

Experts in Indigenous culture and values, heritage preservation, architecture, engineering and urban planning among others will contribute. The panel will examine design options created by a technical adviser and provide advice, including recommendations on the preferred concept design.

Public consultations are expected to begin in late spring or early summer 2024. Input from the public consultations and also Indigenous consultation will be evaluated by the RAIC review panel.

The Alexandra Bridge is more than 120 years old and is nearing the end of its lifecycle. The government mandated the replacement of the Alexandra Bridge in Budget 2019.
