A bridge in downtown Owen Sound will be closed to traffic this week.

The city advises the 8th Street Bridge is undergoing rehabilitation work which will require the removal of asphalt, the application of a new waterproof layer and re-paving.

Due to the construction work, 8th Street is closed from 1st Avenue West to 2nd Avenue East until Aug. 23.

City staff say two bus routes will also be re-routed due to the road closure. The core route will be detoured at the intersection of 2nd Avenue West to 9th Street East, where it will head east to 3rd Avenue East and then continue south.

The Brooke route will detour on 3rd Avenue East at 10th Street East. It will head west on 10th Street to 1st Avenue East then continue its normal route.
