The con­struc­tion of a steel arch bridge just west of exit 26 in Digby is tak­ing longer than ex­pected.

The bridge is go­ing to con­nect an ATV rail bed trail so ATV’ers don’t need to il­le­gally cross the high­way.

Con­struc­tion was an­tic­i­pated to be com­pleted in March.

The De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion and In­fra­struc­ture and Re­newal said in an email that con­struc­tion was de­layed be­cause crews had to re­lo­cate util­ity poles be­fore parts of the bridge could be built and in­stalled.

The es­ti­mated $ 1.9- mil­lion project is now ex­pected to be fin­ished later this month.
