North Forks Bridge repairs in York County begin Monday

The Department of Energy and Resource Development says the North Forks Bridge in York County will be closed for repairs starting Monday.

The bridge, about 200 metres west of the intersection of Upper Stoneridge Road and Lower Stoneridge Road, is on the former railway bed multi-use trail.

The province says crews will be replacing the bridge deck and steel support substructure, and the bridge is expected to reopen by July 7th.

Recreational trail users are advised to avoid this portion of trail because there is no safe detour route.
