A major construction project is taking shape on Highway 2, in Hunter River near the Irving station. It’s a new bridge crossing the Clyde River. An environmentally-friendly reusable temporary bridge has been moved into place to handle the traffic while the bridge is under construction. Traffic for much of the summer is expected to be congested near the site. Fortunately, volumes are down because of the pandemic and closed borders to much of rest of the country and the United States. Construction began in late June and the new bridge should be finished by sometime in October.
