Province to replace Swamp River bridge near Shebandowan

By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com

The province is spending $3.2 million to replace the Swamp River bridge west of Shebandowan.

The contract to do the Highway 11 work, which will create 32 temporary jobs, was awarded to LH North Ltd.
Work is expected to begin in the spring.

“The reconstruction of the bridge will be greatly appreciated by travellers on the Trans-Canada Highway as well as many people who rely on it for access to local recreational properties,” said MPP Bill Mauro (Lib., Thunder Bay-Atikokan) in a release.

Realist, Hwy 11 is also part of the Trans Canada Highway, north of 17 through Hearst and south of 17 through Fort Frances.

Travellers on the Trans-Canada Highway will only cross it if they're lost.

I will greatly appreciate the jolt when you hit the train tracks being taken care of though.
