The Red River Bridge along the South Perimeter Highway is down to one lane heading west with the province saying there appear to be surface cracks in the bridge deck concrete.
The westbound curb lane is now closed for inspection. The assessment will determine what repairs need to be made and how long they will take. Manitoba 511 says "there will be no accommodation for wide loads throughout the duration of the project." According to 511, the vehicle width limit now in effect is 3.7 metres and a reduced speed limit of 60 km/h is also in effect.
CORRECTION: We previously reported the entire bridge was closed for inspection, but only one westbound lane is closed, according to the province.
