Tri-County Vanguard - - News - TRICOUNTY VANGUARD

The Cape Forchu Bridge on Route 304, lo­cated at the Yar­mouth Bar, is re­duced to one lane of traf­fic while re­pairs to the bridge are un­der­way.

The one lane for traf­fic is ex­pected to be in place un­til Sun­day, March 31.

Traf­fic lights and traf­fic con­trol per­son­nel will be on site. Work takes place from sun­rise to sun­set.

Last spring

a

$1-mil­lion roadwork project was an­nounced by the prov­ince that in­cluded re­place­ment of the cause­way bridge lead­ing to Cape Forchu along with main­te­nance of the sea­wall and ar­mour stone that’s at the Yar­mouth Bar.

The ar­mour stone has sunk down quite a bit over the years.

The route is the only road to the Yar­mouth light­house and the Yar­mouth Bar is also home to a large sec­tor of the fish­ing fleet in Yar­mouth County.

Work at the site got un­der­way in Novem­ber.
