Emerald Bridge Repairs - Steve Bruce

Emerald Bridge 3.jpgRoadway repairs are a way of life in this province and any time work is started or finished early it's considered quite a bonus. Well, work is due to start to replace the Emerald Bridge earlier than scheduled. It wasn't supposed to start until the spring. The bridge closed several months ago, after the province determined it couldn't sustain the weight of snowplows. But that meant a 13 killometre detour for residents... and they thought that was too much. CBC's Steve Bruce spoke with Minister of Transportation Robert Vessey about the project today. We'll hear from him in just a moment. But first, Steve went out to Emerald today to speak with resident Ken MacCarville about his concerns.
