Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge to Close on September 18th

The Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge will close on Wednesday, Sept. 18 for a deck replacement announced earlier this year. During construction, the public will not be able to use the bridge and should consider alternate travel arrangements such as using the Westmorland Street Bridge, carpooling or using the bus.

Fredericton Transit will continue to offer service to and from the downtown at the Union Street stop adjacent to the walking trail and Picaroon’s.

The work is necessary to repair a deteriorating deck and railway bridge ties. When the job is done, residents and visitors will enjoy the bridge for generations to come. The project will take approximately 4 months to complete.
