The Centennial Bridge Rehabilitation Project will take place until 2025. The 10-year approximately $100 million project will rehabilitate Miramichi’s Centennial Bridge originally built in 1967.
Once completed, residents and visitors to the city will benefit from a more resilient bridge and a better drive. As part of the project, a new sidewalk will also be installed.
A portion of the piers, steel painting and rehabilitation work has been completed.
Work for 2022 will focus on pier work, bearing replacements and relocating utility infrastructure. Work during the remaining years of the project will include widening the roadway across the bridge, improving of the piers, replacing the deck and rehabilitating some of the steel components. Some full closures are expected in 2023, 2024 and 2025, but planning is in place to mitigate the impact of the closures. The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is working closely with the City of Miramichi.
During the work for 2022, the Centennial Bridge will be reduced to one lane occasionally. Please drive slowly through the construction zone and be respectful as the City is also potentially doing some work in the area.
