The grand opening of the Coulter Bridge has been postponed.
Members of the group that initially lobbied for the replacement of the bridge connecting Coulter and Waskada on Highway 251 were told by the province to postpone the celebration until the bridge has been handed over to Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation.
The bridge was destroyed by flooding in 2011 and in 2012, motorists started using an ice road to cross the river.
The bridge’s construction began in January 2013.
A new opening date will be announced at a later date.
