Status Update: Pre-work ongoing, no anticipated lane closures
at this time.
The Marysville Bridge opened in the fall of 1970 across the Nashwaak River in Fredericton to replace the former bridge which was damaged in 1970.
In the summer of 2022, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will begin repairs on the Marysville Bridge. Details of the bridge work are available below along with the status of each phase. DTI wishes to advise the travelling public that during this time the bridge and approaches will be reduced to one lane of traffic. There may also be six occasions of bridge closures in the summer of 2022 for up to 12 hours to allow for the bridge to be lifted to install new bridge bearings. The public will be notified ahead of the bridge closure dates. In 2023, the Marysville Bridge will be closed to all traffic for two, 72-hour periods to allow for the concrete deck pours to take place. Any closures or additional traffic disruptions will be communicated to the public.
Work on this project is anticipated to be complete before the end of November 2023.
Once complete, the lifespan of the bridge will be extended by another 30 years.
