Temporary fix starts at Causeway Bridge

Work on an interim solution on the Long Point Causeway Bridge is now underway.

A rig mat, or temporary is being installed over the structure that connects the Big Creek Marsh with Long Point Bay.

Norfolk Public Works General Manager Lee Robinson expects weight restrictions will be removed by the end of next week.

The bridge received a clean bill of health this spring however a routine inspection on May 14th found a failing horizontal beam.

Traffic is down to one lane and speed restrictions are in effect.
