YARMOUTH COUNTY: Indian Sluice Bridge

From Wednesday, Oct. 5, until Wednesday, Oct. 19, the Indian Sluice Bridge, also known as Surettes Island Bridge, will be closed for repairs on weekdays from 9 a.m to 12:30 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Throughout the repair period a reduced load limit will be required on the bridge. This will affect large trucks but not standard passenger vehicles or school buses. The weight restrictions will be removed once repairs are completed.

These restrictions will allow the repair work to be carried out quickly and minimize the inconvenience for bridge users.
