Contract awarded for Westmorland Street Bridge (as posted by Communications NB)
The provincial government has awarded a contract valued at more than $514,000 to HBH Paving Ltd. of Island View to repave the Westmorland Street Bridge. Environment Minister Rick Miles, Finance Minister Greg Byrne and Attorney General Kelly Lamrock made the announcement on Wednesday.

The paving, which will total 800 m, will not be scheduled on southbound lanes during the morning commute or on northbound lanes during the evening.

Drivers can expect to see crews on the bridge during non-peak driving times, on nights and weekends, at which time there will be some delays and lane reductions. The Department of Transportation is co-ordinating this project in a manner that minimizes the disruption on area residents. The City of Fredericton for working with DOT by granting an exemption to the municipal noise bylaw.

The paving must be completed by Friday, June 11, in advance of the scheduled closure of the Princess Margaret Bridge on Saturday, June 19.
