Photo: William R Bennett Bridge Kelowna Okanagan Lake BC Canada

This floating bridge located in Kelowna, a city in the Okanagan in BC, Canada, is known as the William R. Bennett Bridge. It opened in May 2008, and this bridge replaced the three lane Kelowna Floating Bridge which could no longer handle all the traffic.

The William R Bennett bridge in Kelowna, in the Okanagan Region of BC, Canada is truly a sight to behold. It crosses the massive Okanagan Lake and as it rises above the lake people crossing the bridge feel as if they are floating above the water as there is nothing else around them except the blue of the lake and the blue of the sky.

The William R. Bennett Bridge was actually built to replace the previous floating bridge known as the Okanagan Lake Bridge. The reason this updated bridge was built is because traffic was building up in the area and outside of the Lower Mainland in British Columbia, this highway is the most congested of all. So a new bridge had to be built to accommodate the thousands of vehicles and to alleviate the traffic jams. ... continue below the picture...

This new bridge is not a toll bridge, which pleases those that have to cross it everyday, but it has five lanes and as can be seen in this picture, it has an elevated span in the middle so that the bridge never has to close for marine traffic to pass through; that also cuts down on potential traffic jams. The bridge was also built with a pedestrian lane and a cycle lane so that it is not just car friendly.
