BROWNS YARD BRIDGE (CNB) - Richibucto River Bridge #3, located on Route 490 in Kent County, will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Monday, Feb. 22, to Friday, March 12, due to scheduled maintenance.
"We are investing more than $25,000 from our 2009-10 capital budget to replace the timber bridge deck," said Transportation Minister Denis Landry. "The sub-deck will remain in place for emergency vehicles to use the bridge if required. The bridge has a weight limit of 30 tonnes."
Motorists are advised to take the Bass River Point Road as an alternate route. The bridge is 33 years old.
