Here is an update on the progress of the bridge from the Director, Gary Brown And Cheerful New Year
The Peddlers Brook Bridge project commenced on August 22 2018 to coincide with the low water levels of the Brook. Low water levels were required to enable us to safely excavate and constructed the cement footings. The cement footings are necessary to support the two piers (or feet) of the bridge on either side of the waterway. This processes was a little more time consuming than we original thought because of our commitment and agreement to up hold water way construction standards required NS Department of Environment as to maintain the environmental integrity of the water way. Peddlers Brooke is a tributary for the Ingonish River which is a breeding river for the endangered Atlantic salmon population.
