Mile 34.4 (km 55.4) Alaska Highway

Peace River Bridge

A suspension bridge was opened in 1943, replacing a ferry crossing. The bridge collapsed in 1957 due to a landslide at the north abutment. The 2,198 ft. long replacement bridge is the longest span on the Alaska Highway.

After you cross the bridge you’ll see the Younger Extraction Plant. It processes natural gas to recover natural gas liquids. It straddles a high-volume pipeline that transports natural gas to southern markets (Vancouver & Lower Mainland).
