Finlay Bridge Resurfacing Project Begins June 24
Medicine Hat – Construction will begin on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 on the Finlay Bridge resurfacing project.
The project involves the replacement of the existing asphalt surface with a more durable concrete surface, which will improve the smoothness of the bridge deck and extend the service life of the bridge.
In combination with the bridge re-surfacing, repairs to the bridge abutments and bearings will also be completed.
During construction, the bridge will be closed to all vehicular traffic. Motorists are reminded to follow all traffic signs and detours related to the ongoing construction.
At least one sidewalk will remain open to pedestrian traffic. Fencing will be in place to ensure public safety and pedestrian access around the construction area.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of September 2020, weather dependent.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary City construction and infrastructure renewal and repair work will continue throughout the City. Residents are reminded to allow crews space to work safely, and to adhere to physical distancing standards by staying at least two meters away from City workers.
The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
