Public Advisory: Traffic to be Restricted on Placentia Lift Bridge
The Department of Transportation and Works advises that the Placentia Lift Bridge will be placed under a load restriction effective immediately. Any commercial vehicle registered in excess of 13,000 kilograms will not be permitted to travel over the bridge. The bridge is safe for public use provided the load restriction is observed.
These measures have been put in place as a result of a structural evaluation that was recently undertaken by the Department of Transportation and Works. Further information regarding the bridge will be made available by the Department of Transportation and Works tomorrow morning.
