102 Ave Bridge Opens Tomorrow Morning • Bridge Construction Crews Working Late

Nearly 2.5 years in the making, at 10:00 AM tomorrow, the 102 Ave bridge will be open!

Although it was previously reported that the bridge would be open for public use in early August, it seems that construction crews have really stepped up their game to get the bridge ready two weeks earlier.

ETS bus routes that make use of the bridge will commence using their normal routes used in 2013-14, making use of the 102 Avenue bridge once again. Shuttles will run tomorrow, but after tomorrow, will discontinue running for the area.

Although the bridge will be open to public for use, the bridge construction will continue over the course of the next couple of months, seeing the closure of lanes on either side during these times.

Here’s to hoping that business starts booming for those who have suffered from the bridge’s closure.

Those responsible for the bridge’s construction are being charged $11,500 for every day the bridge misses its “promised completion date” in September 2015. At this point, they will be charged at least $3.3 million.
