Beginning spring 2020, Alberta Transportation will begin construction on the Medicine River Bridge on Highway 12, 14 km north of the Town of Eckville. The current bridge structure, which was constructed in 1981 requires extensive repairs.
Repairs will require temporary closures, single-lane traffic and lane restrictions.
Construction on the bridge is anticipated to begin April 2020 and take approximately 5 months to complete, weather permitting. Active construction work is typically expected to occur between the hours of 7 am to 5 pm daily, however, it may be extended as required.
