Westmorland Street Bridge Construction 2014

The Westmorland Street Bridge will be reduced to two lanes of traffic from June 23 to August 26 due to construction. The upriver (West) lanes and sidewalk will be closed first.  The downriver (East) lanes will be closed next.  Devonshire Drive will also be paved.

While a minimum of one lane of traffic will remain being open in each direction at all times, significant traffic delays will result if motorists don't change their driving habits.

Options include exploring flex time at work, taking vacation, walking, biking, carpooling, using transit, allowing extra time to complete errands, reducing or combining trips across the bridge, or trying alternate river crossings like the Princess Margaret Bridge.
