Mill Creek Bridge rehabilitation delayed

The County of Bruce is completing rehabilitation work on Mill Creek Bridge located on Bruce Road 17 at the east limit of Port Elgin on Gustavus Street in the Town of Saugeen Shores. The work includes the replacement of the super-structure of the bridge, and the additions of sidewalk and improved lighting.

The opening of the Mill Creek Bridge is delayed until approximately the middle of September instead of the end of August as previously announced. Additional delays were encountered due to inclement weather and the need to stop work on the bridge while a new gas distribution line was installed under the creek at the bridge site.

Bruce County appreciates the patience of the affected residents, visitors and businesses while this critical work to improve public safety closes the road.
