Work on the new bridge in Kintyre, St Andrew is scheduled to be completed and opened for access within the next 10 days.




The old bridge was destroyed during the passage of Hurricane Sandy last year.



The bridge is the main thoroughfare for several St Andrew communities such as Tavern, Hope Flats, Cosmo Mews, Bedward Pastures and surrounding areas.



The new 200-foot, two-lane bridge is being constructed at a cost of $100 million.



Some $40 million of that amount is to be spent on river training and construction of a walkway for pedestrians.



The Ministry of Transport and Works says these works are to take place after the bridge is in place.
