Murrays Hill Bridge to Reopen in Summer
The Murrays Hill Bridge in Inverness County will reopen next summer. The bridge, which crossed the Mabou River near Rankinville Road, was recently removed because of damage sustained during flooding in September. “We recognize the importance of the bridge to the community,” said Murray Scott, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “I’ve asked the department staff to explore options to determine the most efficient way to get the crossing back in operation.” The bridge was more than 100 years old and was not used in the winter because of the steepness of the approaches. The crossing was not used by school buses, fire trucks or emergency vehicles.
