There is good news for commuters in Prince Albert. The city manager says they are almost ready to re-open all four lanes on the Diefenbaker Bridge.
Barring any further delays, repairs will be complete and traffic flow will return to normal in mid-December. Drivers can then expect brief lane closures in January while scaffolding is removed from underneath the bridge.
The city manager says the bridge still needs about $7 million of general maintenance and upkeep. He says that will happen sometime in the next five years.
