SAINT-PAUL (CNB) - The West Branch Buctouche #2 Bridge in the Saint-Paul area of Kent County is closed until Friday, Aug. 13, for repairs.

"This project consists of the removal and replacement of the timber bridge deck and elevating it, along with the bridge railing and driving surface," said Transportation Minister Denis Landry. "This structure is 43-years old, and we are investing $50,000 to extend its service life."

The bridge is on Route 515 about two kilometres east of Route 126. Signs have been posted to guide motorists to alternate routes.
