Motorists who use the Red River Bridge on Highway 23 at Morris will need to find an alternative route beginning Monday.
The province is closing the roadway at 6 a.m. for a two-month period to replace the bridge deck. The work is part of a planned $30 million rehabilitation project.
The closure will be in effect until August 25 at 6 a.m. From then until September 29, the bridge will be re-opened to two-way traffic at 50 km/h and from 6 a.m. September 29 to 6 a.m. December 1 when the bridge will be closed to all traffic.
The detour route across the Red River during the closure periods will be Highway 75 to Highway 205, through Aubigny, and PR 246 to get back to Highway 23.
