Work On Maxwell Bridge Should Begin Soon

It's been an 8 month wait before news struck yesterday on the future of the Maxwell Crossing Covered Bridge.

The bridge will be repaired back to it's original state, but many residents are wondering why it took so long to decide?

Charlotte-Campobello MLA Curtis Malloch says the Minister of Transportation was negotiating with the insurance company to get taxpayers "the best bang for their buck".

Malloch tells CHSJ News they are wrapping up the final paperwork adding they are waiting for the engineering report from DOT to compare it to one from the insurance company.

Malloch says when that report comes in they will be able to set exact dates for construction adding it should begin this fall.

The bridge was damaged back in January after a driver lost control of his car and crashed inside it.
