City Public Works crews completed the construction of the Cottonwood Creek Bridge on Lakeside Drive in record time.

The closure of the bridge that links traffic to the Regional District of Central Kootenay transfer station and the west end of the City of Nelson Dogwalk, was necessary to replace aging bridge timbers.

The bridge was closed most of Sunday, re-opened during the afternoon.

The bridge closure completed a hectic few days on Lakeside Drive.

Paving crews completed some patch paving near the east end of the City Airport.

Don’t forget about water restrictions
