Update! CP Rail Bridge Construction

Construction of the pedestrian bridge beside the CP Rail Bridge is progressing reasonably well considering the high water levels.  The pre-manufactured part of the bridge is scheduled to be in place in a few weeks.  Bridge rehabilitation on the rail side of the bridge will continue for a while after that, which will necessitate that the bridge will be closed from time to time until mid-summer.

Update! Hunter Street Bridge Cycling Lanes

Cycling lanes are scheduled to be painted on the Hunter Street bridge once the paint crews are mobilized in early summer!
