ENGLISHTOWN, N.S. — Traffic on the Seal Island Bridge is restricted to one lane as the second phase of a three-year project to rebuild the bridge deck has resumed.
Work will continue until Oct. 15, with traffic controlled by signal lights. Bridge users can expect delays of five to 10 minutes most of the time.
The bridge will remain open throughout construction, except for occasional half-hour closures late in the evening or overnight.
In addition, there may be a few overnight closures from midnight to 6 a.m. The bridge reconstruction team will announce these in advance.
Throughout construction, trucks wider than 3.2 metres will be unable to use the bridge. Truckers can get detailed information about load limits from the weigh station at Auld’s Cove or by calling 902-747-2004.
The project will result in wider vehicle lanes, new curbs and a modern railing.
