The Robert Campbell Bridge will be reduced to a single lane from July 6-20 to allow for repairs to be made overnight.

Improvements to the ageing bridge, which was built in 1975, will include deck patching and concrete sealing.

Repairs will affect traffic between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

City council awarded the contract to Andco Enterprises Ltd. back in March, for $307,000. Another bid received from Thomas Contracting Yukon Inc. was found to be unbalanced and was rejected.

Last year, the bridge was widened to create more space for pedestrians and cyclists. But repairs to the main bridge deck were last made in 2009.

“Not awarding this contract would result in further deterioration of the bridge deck,” stated a city administration report presented to council in March.

“In addition, delaying these maintenance repairs could potentially increase the need to replace the entire deck sooner than forecasted.”
