Brown's Bridge in Bathurst reopens to traffic

It appears as though work has wrapped up on Brown's Bridge on Sunset Drive in Bathurst.

Several motorists reported crossing it on Thursday.

The more than 100 year old single-lane bridge crossing the Tetagouche River was replaced with a two-lane concrete girder bridge with an estimated cost of $6.9 million.

We've reached out to the provincial government several times inquiring whether it was completed within the estimated budget.

Our requests for information went unanswered.
