Yukon Government to stabilize the Ross River Suspension Bridge

Heritage Canada The National Trust (HCNT) congratulates Yukon Premier Darrell Pasloski on the government’s decision to issue a request for proposal to stabilize the Ross River Suspension Bridge.

This positive move overturns an earlier decision to demolish the historic footbridge (reported here), and allows the government the opportunity to work with the Ross River Dena Council to secure and review options to restore this extraordinary Yukon heritage and tourism asset.

“HCNT is pleased to have played a role in bringing national attention to this important structure,” said Executive Director Natalie Bull. “And we thank the Premier, Minister of Community Services Brad Cathers, and Ross River Dena Chief Brian Ladue for responding positively to the tremendous effort made by Ross River and Yukon residents and organizations to secure a future for this historic bridge.”
