Work is underway to restore a key piece of infrastructure for Lunenburg County residents.
The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal has finished preliminary design work to replace the large steel culvert on Bruhm Road, near Bridgewater, that was washed away during a storm in December. Staff have also completed surveys of the site, stabilized the embankment with rock, and removed the steel structure that washed downstream.
The replacement is expected to be an open-bottom structure. The department will now be seeking the usual required regulatory approval before tendering the construction.
Construction is anticipated to begin this summer and be completed by fall.
