Hey there, time traveller!

It's be a few more days before the city knows just how badly the Eighth Street Bridge was damaged, but a structural engineer has given pedestrians the go-ahead to walk over the damaged span.
After a couple of days of weather delays, a Winnipeg-based structural engineer was able to give the bridge an initial assessment Friday morning.
More information about the condition of the bridge is expected Monday, and there's currently no timeline as to when — or whether — it can be re-opened to vehicle traffic.
A lateral support span on the bridge was badly damaged on Tuesday when it was struck underneath by a five-ton commerical truck, carrying a large metal dump bin.
