For the next few months Wallaceburg’s Murray Street Bridge is a no go for motorists.
Beginning March 8, the crossing will be closed to all vehicular traffic until May 1. However, one sidewalk for pedestrians will remain open for the duration of the project.
Two detours will be set up. The first includes Murray Street, McNaughton Avenue, Wellington Street and Margaret Avenue. The second detour includes Murray Street, Queen Street, Gillard Street, McNaughton Avenue, James Street, Margaret Avenue and Wellington Street.
During the revamp, the Murray Street Bridge will not be operational for lifting for larger boats, but smaller vessels will be able to navigate it.
Landform Civil Infrastructures Ltd. has been working on the rehabilitation of the structure, which spans the Sydenham River, since December of last year.
The bridge is expected to be fully operational by May 15.
