At their February 23, 2016 meeting council for the Municipal District of Pincher Creek No. 9 received a report from Director of Operations Leo Reedyk regarding regarding Emergency Repair Bridge File 6906 – Burmis Lake Twp. Rd. 7-2. The bridge was inspected in 2015. Large sections of concrete had fallen away from the structure, presumably as a result of tree debris damage incurred during the 2013 flood, resulting in a 5 tonne weight limit for vehicles using the bridge.
Council authorized the signing of a contract with M. Johnston Construction Ltd, (Cranbrook) to proceed with the project. Project funding of $106,829 is to come from the Public Works Capital Budget Reserve account.
