Big Eddy Bridge closure next Thursday

The Big Eddy Bridge will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Thursday, April 30, from 7 am until 2:30 pm so work crews can complete repairs to the bridge.
“The City of Revelstoke thanks you for your patience during this closure and apologizes for any inconvenience this closure may cause,” the Engineering and Development Services Department said in a statement released on Monday morning.
The 91-year-old bridge is approaching the end of its useful lifespan. A Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure expert told City Council in 2010 that it likely would not last another 10 years.
