Fredericton’s Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge Reopens

The city’s historic Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge across the Saint John River reopened today after a major renovation project.

Funding for $3.9 million of the $4.3-million refurbishment was shared evenly between the City of Fredericton, and the provincial and federal governments under the Small Communities Fund, a component of the New Building Canada Fund.

The provincial government contributed the remaining $400,000 to cover repairs to some of the concrete piers.
