LCG'S Public Works Department announced the extension of the Bourque Road Bridge closure.

The bridge which crosses Coulee Ile des Cannes will be closed until the end of January 2022, weather permitting.

LCG says material delays and more damage than expected at the start of construction delayed the original completion date.

Drivers will continue to be directed to use Elias G. Road to cross the coulee.

On November 22, 2021, the bridge was closed for repairs and was expected to reopen in late December.
