CAMPBELL’S BAY – The ministère des Transports du Québec informed the population on July 24 that traffic will be reduced to one lane on the bridge that crosses over Stevenson Creek in Campbell’s Bay along Highway 148 to allow major repairs to be made to the bridge. The project is expected to cost about $3 million.
“The work is for the complete rehabilitation of the bridge including reconstructing the deck and slab
foundation as well as other foundation
elements, to increase its lifespan,” said Karine Sauve, MTQ Spokesperson. 
The work began July 27 and will continue until June 27, 2016. For the entire duration of the work, one lane will be closed seven days a week, 24 hours per day, and vehicles will
alternate with the help of a traffic light on a lane reduced to 3.5 metres in width. The speed limit in the area has been reduced to 50 km/h.
The estimated completion date may vary depending on the weather and operational constraints.
