August 30, 2021
UPDATE: The Industrial Road at KM 52 remains closed. Click here to view a map of the currently signed detour routes. A formal engineering report NFMC received on August 19th highlighted more advanced safety issues than initially discovered after removal of the bridge deck running surface. NFMC is working diligently with engineers and the Ministry of Transportation to find the best long-term solution for the bridge. We’ll continue to post updates as more information is available but we appreciate your patience and understanding in the meantime.
