Kimberley-Wasa Highway: 0050.0722

BRIDGE OVER CHERRY CREEK IS COMPLETED – Some Construction Work is Yet to Be Done on New Kimberley-Wasa Cutoff

            Construction of the bridge over Cherry Creek on the Kimberley-Wasa highway is finished and most of the bridge crew has been either laid off or transferred to other work.  This bridge is approximately 240 feet long and in places from thirty to fifty feet in height.   Work on this piece of new road is not completed, and will be held up to some extent by the early snowfall and inclement weather.  However, the road will easily be completed for next season’s traffic, and will cut down the distance between Kimberley and Wasa some twelve miles.  Motorists from Cranbrook can then have the choice of either going by way of Fort Steele, or by way of Kimberley and east over the McGinty road.
