The Red Bridge Project

The Kamloops Communities in Bloom committee embarked on an initiative to enhance the Red Bridge and make it an iconic landmark in Kamloops in recognition of its history as a cultural and business connection between the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc and the City of Kamloops.

The Red Bridge was opened in 1936 and is the third foot and vehicle bridge over the South Thompson River. The first was built in 1887; a second in 1912. They are all wooden trestle bridges using a Howe truss construction.

Red Bridge Project

The project includes three phases:

  1. Beautify the bridge entrances including signage.
  2. Highlight the bridge's history with prominent information kiosks at the Lorne Street entrance, in Pioneer Park and possibly on Mount Paul Way.
  3. Light the bridge with solar flood lighting.

The enhancements will improve the night panorama of the city both from the ground and the sky and become a "must see" place for locals and visitors alike.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 for the total project.

We invite you to be a part of this historic venture.
