Bowen Road Widening & Bridge Replacement

Avoid Construction Delays
Avoid The Area If You Can

The Bowen Road widening and Quarterway Bridge project will be getting underway any day now and will take until the fall of 2012 to complete. During the construction you can expect the usual delays associated with any major construction, and this is a major project. Before completion it will have cost $10 million, unless of course there are over runs in costs.

When complete the stretch of road between Pryde Avenue to just beyond the Bowen Rd. and Buttertubs Rd will be widened and the Quarterway Bridge will have been replaced. The first phase of construction will see the installation of a two lane bridge that will be constructed north of the existing one and will include road widening and the needed utility upgrades. In the fall of 2011 traffic will be rerouted to the new two lane bridge.

The #3 Hospital bus has posted a notice advising of changes to their route which will be in effect during construction. The bus will not be using Pryde Ave. to Townsite during construction. Passengers are advised to use the bus stop near the 7 - 11 during this time. More information available HERE.
