PONT-LAFRANCE (CNB) - Traffic on the Tracadie River # 2 Bridge on Route 370 in Pont Lafrance will be reduced to one lane until Sept. 25 as the result of major repairs.
The Department of Transportation is undertaking significant repairs to the concrete beam structure, built in 1975.
"The department is investing more than $355,000 to do a complete rehabilitation of the bridge deck, replacing the expansion joints and repave the road surface," said Transportation Minister Denis Landry.
The department apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and reminds motorists to reduce their speed and be aware of workers in construction zones.
