5th Street Bridge lane closures this week

The 5th Street Bridge will be reduced to single-lane alternating traffic over two consecutive evenings this week.

On Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13 expect lane closures both evenings starting at 6:30 p.m. and continuing until 6 a.m. the following mornings.

Engineers will be conducting a bridge condition assessment, including a review of the bridge coating. The work has been scheduled overnight to minimize impacts on the traveling public. There may be noise associated with the work, but properties directly impacted will be notified.

Traffic control personnel will be on hand to assist all commuters, including vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. Emergency services have been notified. Please use caution and obey traffic control personnel.

For further information about the lane closure, contact City of Courtenay engineering services at 250-334-4441.
