Bailey Bridge repair underway in Bella Coola Valley

The Ministry of Transportation anticipates the work will be completed mid-October

The Bailey Bridge in Hagensborg is now closed while two aging wood spans at the south end of the bridge are replaced with a single concrete span.

A lighted pedestrian-only crossing is in place.

There is a shuttle service available by calling 250-982-2342 at the Bailey Bridge Campground and leaving a message.

The phone will be checked every hour.

A Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure spokesperson said the bridge is expected to reopen to vehicle traffic by mid-October.
