Indian Sluice Bridge replacement moves up priority list

Posted on Updated on

TUSKET, NS – The Indian Sluice Bridge replacement will happen sooner than was anticipated thanks to the hard work from the Bridge Replacement Committee to make the project a priority, Argyle MLA Chris d’Entremont said today.

Originally, the bridge replacement was going to take place in 2013/14 but the timeline has been moved up to a 2012/13 start.

“This bridge is an important artery in Argyle and I was pleased that replacement was ramped up an entire year earlier,” said d’Entremont. “Instead of performing small item, preventative maintenance year after year, the replacement will ensure the bridge is safe, open and accessible for residents’ use.”

In the meantime, the Bridge will be subject to periodic closures to allow for strengthening repairs. Beginning October 5th, the bridge will be closed Monday to Friday from 9-12:30 pm and 1-2:30 pm.

d’Entremont said the Indian Sluice Bridge was one of the priority infrastructure projects in Argyle.
