Sixth Ave. East bridge opened temporarily

The City of Prince Rupert is temporarily opening the Sixth Avenue East bridge until the remainder of upgrades can be completed.

The City of Prince Rupert is temporarily opening the Sixth Avenue East bridge for an indefinite period of time until the remainder of upgrades can be completed.

The bridge was closed on July 9 for repairs, originally scheduled to be completed in the first week of September.

The only remaining task is to grind off the old asphalt surface and replace it with new asphalt, however the group contracted for the work isn’t currently available.

“The Sixth Avenue bridge has been temporarily opened until we finalize the repairs which are tentatively scheduled to start in September. We anticipate a short closure; however every effort will be made to accommodate bridge traffic,” reads a release from the City of Prince Rupert’s engineering and public works department.

“In the meantime, the bridge is safe for vehicle traffic in its temporary condition. Please drive with reduced speeds and caution in the interim until the repairs are complete.”
