The Quebec Ministry of Transport has completed the complete closure of Avoca Bridge, located above the Red River, on Walker Road in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge.The bridge is closed until further notice.
Following a survey of the condition of the structure, this immediate closure is necessary to ensure the safety of road users. A bridge rehabilitation project is currently in design.
A detour route was set up via the municipal network to Highway 50. Since this bridge was first limited to 5 tonnes since June 2018, the detour route was already being used by vehicles weighing more than 5 tonnes, for example schoolbuses and emergency services vehicles.
Current road conditions information about future road blocks is available by consulting Quebec 511.
