Halloween marked for bridge project completion

SAINT JOHN – Construction on the Saint John Harbour Bridge is expected to be completed on schedule, authorities say.

According to the Telegraph-Journal, the bridge’s general manager Ken Anthony says that the refurbishment work has gone smoothly since construction – and traffic delays – began in May.

The first phase of the project is slated for completion on Oct. 31.

Crews have been working to partially remove the deck from the two westbound lanes and replace the concrete barriers, sidewalks and lanes.

Next year, the eastbound lanes will undergo similar repair.

Earlier this month, the Princess Margaret Bridge in Fredericton reopened  after a five-week closure.
