Metro Transit buses will again be allowed to use the aging CN bridge near the base of Quinpool Road in Halifax after the installation of jersey barriers.
Last month, the Halifax Regional Municipality announced it was placing weight restrictions on the 93-year-old bridge because it was “showing the effects of age, heavy traffic flow and weight,” according to a press release.
Those restrictions included Metro Transit buses, now lifted because of the new jersey barriers along the edge of the bridge, which “are a safety measure to protect the concrete parapets from potential vehicle impacts.”
The HRM put in the jersey barriers on a request from CN.
Bus routes No. 6 Quinpool and No. 32 Cowie Hill were forced to re-route because of the restrictions, but will return to their normal starting today.
