The initial construction phase of the new Port Kenyon bridge has been completed and Francis Creek is flowing under Port Kenyon Road once again! On Tuesday, October 27, the new bridge arrived in pieces on multiple flatbed trailers. By the end of Tuesday, the bridge infrastructure was completed. It was an amazing engineering feat to behold!
On Saturday, October 31, I was allowed to be the first vehicle to drive over the new bridge.
Later that day, the two dams holding water back on either side of the bridge were removed. Today, November 1, Francis Creek is flowing from Ferndale and under the new construction. There is still more work to be done to complete the project like paving the roadway.
