Nipigon Bridge Update

January 14, 2016
Minister Gravelle and Minister del Duca attended site yesterday and met with Mayor Richard Harvey from the Town of Nipigon and Chief Wawia and council members from Red Rock FN including regional Chief Pelletier for Robinson Superior Treaty and Chief Hardy from‎ Biinjitiwaabik Zaaging Anishinaabek
24-hour monitoring of the bridge joints and bearings continues.
One lane of traffic continues to move over the bridge, under flagging conditions and with a pace vehicle.
Expected wait time to cross less than 5 minutes

That’s five minutes from the time one starts to cross the bridge until one is off the bridge.   That doesn’t include the backlog of traffic.
