Chesley's new Main Street Bridge will re-open as of 2 p.m. this afternoon.
The connecting link closed in February 2018 due to structural damage sustained from flooding. Construction began to repair the bridge last June and it briefly re-opened this past winter before another full closure in April to complete work on the new bridge.
It is now known as the Oswald Bridge.
"The opening of the new Oswald Bridge demonstrates the resilience of Bruce County to come together in response to an emergency structural failure of the old bridge," Bruce County's Director of Transportation and Environmental Services Miguel Pelletier says in a statement.
Bruce county staff advises it will still require occasional lane restrictions over the next two weeks for streetlight installation and restoration work.
