HALIFAX, N.S. — The Canterbury Bridge on Bellefontaine Road, which was closed in early October when an inspection uncovered structural deficiencies, will be temporarily replaced with a panel bridge.
“This is good news for a large number of motorists,” says Ron Russell, Minister of Transportation and Public Works. “It will help with local traffic until a permanent replacement can be designed and built.”
Motorists are being detoured on Route 207, Trunk 7 and Highway 107, depending on direction of travel.
Design work is under way and the call for tenders to purchase and install the bridge is expected to close in late November or early December.
The temporary bridge is expected to be in place by February.
