Commuter Relief At Last!

The drive home for west siders should be a little easier this evening -- the west bound lanes of the Harbour Bridge have re-opened to traffic after being closed since the spring for a major overhaul.
The province took over the bridge April 1st after reaching a deal with the federal government to remove the tolls -- and -- Transportation Minister Claude Williams tells CHSJ News inheriting the 35-million dollar upgrade project from the former Harbour Bridge Authority led to some delays in getting work underway this year.
The Minister says the Chesley Drive off ramp is still on schedule to re-open by the end of the month while work on the lane realignment and curbing in the area of the former toll plaza should be completed by next month.
