Great Village bridge
Work is expected to be completed in November by Alva Construction at a cost of $2.3 million. The old bridge, one of the few remaining one-lane structures on Nova Scotia’s trunk highway system, was built in 1891, according to information provided by the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal.
