Nisutlin Bay Bridge
The Government of Yukon has determined that the Nisutlin Bay Bridge should be replaced and the existing bridge will be demolished. This is currently expected to complete by 2024. A project charter between the government and Teslin Tlingit Council agrees a shared understanding of the project process that includes the maximization of benefits for Yukon citizens and businesses such as job creation and contracting opportunities during construction
A tender was issued for engineering services that includes the development of a procurement strategy that considers community feedback on methods that will ensure these benefits.
This project is too large and complex for DDC to manage directly. However, DDC is participating in this process to provide its recent project management expertise, knowledge of local contractors, workers and capacity and to advise on how the bridge and its construction and procurement methods can be adapted to benefit Teslin. DDC will assist in facilitating ways to be involved and we highly recommend all businesses register with our Teslin Business Directory that will be a strong avenue to promote goods and services.
