In time for the summer season, drivers will be back on both lanes, and cyclists and pedestrians will be able to use the wider and safer pathways, when crossing the Rosedale overhead bridge on Highway 9 in the coming days.
Construction started in August 2017, and included upgrading the original bridge built in the 1950s to modern-day safety and seismic standards. Along with a seismic retrofit, the bridge deck was widened to allow two-metre shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists, with steel fencing for added safety.
Crews continue to complete finishing touches, which include final paving and general clean-up, and expect to be finished later this spring.
The ministry appreciates the patience of commuters and residents while crews complete this safety improvement project valued at $9.3 million.
