Temporary closure of the viewing platforms on the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge

The City of Fredericton Engineering & Operations Department advises the public, effective immediately, the viewing platforms on the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge will be temporarily closed as a safety precaution.

Barriers will be in place and we ask residents to stay off the viewing platforms. The City will have an engineering firm access the structural state of the railings on the viewing platforms.  We wish to reassure the public that there is no issue with the deck surface and other railings on the bridge.

The City of Fredericton thanks bridge users for their patience and cooperation during this necessary closure.
