New Bridge Near Cypress River

CYPRESS RIVER, MB – Pre- construction work has begun on a new bridge along highway 2.

The current bridge is over 60 years old and although still safe, needs to be replaced to ensure traffic is not disrupted on this busy corridor.

The bridge is just east of Cypress River and was constructed in 1956. A detour adjacent to the bridge is currently underway and the bridge replacement is scheduled to start in the fall of 2018.
