Construction during the next six months will restrict traffic to a single lane while the deck of the Nimpkish River bridge is replaced.

Delays to accompany bridge construction

PORT McNEILL-Commuters will face alternating, single-lane traffic control during six-month project on Nimpkish River Bridge.

PORT McNEILL—A season-long construction project will limit traffic on the Nimpkish River bridge to a single lane this spring and summer, the contractor announced this week.

Neelco Builders Ltd. embark Mar. 31 on Phase 1 of a deck replacement on the bridge, located just south of Port McNeill.

Work is scheduled to be completed on or before Sept. 30.

Commuters traveling down-Island are notified to be aware of potential travel delays during this period.

Single-lane, alternating traffic will be in effect 24 hours a day and the speed limit in the project area will be reduced to 50 km per hour. Traffic will be controlled by a combination of a temporary traffic signal and traffic control personnel.
