Continuing repair work on the underside of the Diefenbaker Bridge means southbound lanes will likely stay closed for the next month.
Work crews are currently machining abutment bearings and plates, a job expected to reach completion by the end of the second week of October. At that point, the bridge’s southbound lanes will be re-opened, while northbound lanes will be closed for roughly three weeks of repair work.
The south end of the bridge will also be closed on Monday to allow the installation of a new SaskEnergy pipeline that will provide Prince Albert with an alternative natural gas supply to the north side of the North Saskatchewan River.
Overwidth load haulers are reminded that they must schedule an appointment with the Public Works Department at 953-4900 to register for 10 a.m. crossings from Monday to Thursday.
