Des Allumettes Bridge, Pembroke: Lane Closure

GATINEAU, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - July 5, 2005) - Public Works and Government Services Canada wishes to advise all motorists that the Quebec bound lane of the Des Allumettes Bridge (Pembroke) will be closed from 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 6, 2005 until 6:00 p.m. Thursday, July 7, 2005.

This lane closure is being undertaken so that the Department can apply a water and salt resistant coating to the surface of the concrete to extend its life. To ensure safe passage for vehicles, traffic will be diverted using traffic control lights on each approach to the Bridge.

Should weather conditions halt the repairs, the public will be notified and the work will be rescheduled to a later date.

Public Works and Government Services Canada apologizes for any inconvenience this lane closure may cause.
