Detour Map

A construction detour will be in place throughout the duration of the project for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians . Local , business, and tourist traffic only access will be provided up to the construction zone at the bridge. Resident, business, and beach access will be available via Warren Street (CR 21) to Carlow Road (CR 20) and back to Bridge Street (CR 4).

To the extent possible, at least one leaf of the bridge will remain open to allow in-water traffic clear passage. There may be some delays to bridge operation while work on the bridge is being completed. Warning signs will be posted for watercraft who need to be aware construction work is ongoing.
