Bridge Replacement to Result in Temporary Street Closure

(Tuesday, September 6/05)-- Local residents and motorists are advised that a portion of Shore Drive in Bedford will be closed beginning today, due to construction to replace the two-lane bridge near Fish Hatchery Lane.

That portion of the road will be closed to traffic for approximately 11 weeks, from today until November 21. Local residents and motorists are advised to use alternate travel routes.

Although the closure does not include the entrance to Fish Hatchery Park, it does allow the contractor to use one or two of the existing parking spots under the CNR bridge.

Pedestrians will be diverted around the construction site and redirected to the path under the Sackville River Bridge.

HRM apologizes for any inconvenience.
