CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — The P.E.I. Department of Transportation and Public Works plans to spend about $3 million as part of a multi-year plan to upgrade the Island’s bridges.

Five bridges have been identified as needing immediate repair. They are: the Poplar Grove Bridge and Goff’s Bridge, in Prince County; the Dunedin Bridge, in Queens County; and Naufrage and Murray River spans, in Kings County.

A sixth bridge, in St. Peters County, has been slated for possible work. That project requires federal-provincial agreement on infrastructure surrounding the new National Park in Greenwich County.

Future work will depend on available resources, the department says.
