Covered bridge open to tour buses again

Tour buses can cross the Vaughan Creek covered bridge in St. Martin’s again.

Weight restrictions were imposed a couple of weeks ago on the bridge which is a key link to the Fundy Trail Parkway and sea caves.

Transportation Minister Bill Fraser told CBC supports have now been added and traffic is back to normal. He also says a modular bridge will be installed next to the wooden bridge which will be a back up in case the covered bridge fails again. His department is also looking at a more permanent link to the Fundy Parkway.
