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.
