Work will start shortly on construction of a new swinging bridge at Souris, with Winkler's WBS Construction taking on the project. The old bridge was taken down in 2011 because of the rising flood waters of the Souris River.
Mayor Darryl Jackson looks forward to having the new bridge in use this summer. "The end product is going to be a swinging bridge, but it will look quite a bit different than the old one," says Jackson. "For a variety of reasons, I mean there's insurance, liability, it just wasn't possible to rebuild the structure, you know, copy what it was."
He adds the motion of the new bridge will be less up and down, and more of a side to side.
Jackson says the bridge will cost $3.8 million with Disaster Financial Assistance is picking up the tab. The new bridge should be open by the end of July.
