A number of construction projects are due to begin today, including replacing the Rocky Point Bridge and work to the Tryon Bridge. Add that to some areas reporting washouts, and the morning commute could be a little slow this morning.
The Rocky Point Bridge replacement project begins today and is scheduled to end July 25. The detour uses Route 19 through Cumberland and Nine Mile Creek.
The eastbound lane of the Tryon Bridge is closed to traffic until further notice.
Construction on the storm sewer on Timber Lane and Route 6 begins today, as well. One-lane, two-way traffic will be maintained during business hours and minor delays are expected.
Resurfacing work on Route 6 in Cymbria will begin Tuesday. One-lane, two-way traffic will be maintained during business hours and minor delays can be expected.
As well today, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal has outlined several areas experiencing washouts after the heavy rain on the weekend. Check www.511.gov.pe.ca for details of areas affected.
The Confederation Bridge also issued an advisory on the weekend that high winds could cause restrictions on the span. The report from the bridge this morning is that it is open to all traffic, which is running smoothly.
