Work is set to begin to twin the Clanwilliam Bridge 10 kilometres west of Revelstoke, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation announced Friday.

According to a press release, the contract for the $29 million project was awarded to Arthon Contractors Inc. and work was set to begin in mid-July and completed in the Fall of 2012.

The project was initially announced in March 2009 in conjunction with the twinning of the Donald Bridge near Golden.

The work will involve building a new four-lane crossing to replace the existing two-lane bridge, straightening the approaches to the bridge and widening the 2.3 kilometre stretch of the highway around the bridge to four lanes.

The federal government is spending $14 million on the project while the provincial government is covering the rest.

Construction on the Donald Bridge is already underway.
