Humboldt, Saskatchewan — The city of Saskatchewan says it plans to permanently commemorate the deadly Broncos bus crash.

The announcement by the city of Humboldt was made on the eve of the third anniversary of the crash, which killed 16 people and injured 13 others.

The plan includes a $ 25 million tribute center with a gallery, arena, fitness and physiotherapy area to honor the victims.

The city says it needs to raise money for the project and it will take at least a few years before construction begins.

The second committee is looking at the roadside memorial at the crash site as the semi-truck passed the stop sign and entered the path of the junior hockey team’s bus.

The city says there are some obstacles to placing a monument at a rural intersection, such as access to power lines and roads.

The Deputy Mayor of Humboldt calls the tribute center another step in the healing process for all.
