An assessment of the James Street swing bridge is still underway, officials with CN Rail said Thursday.

Scaffolding has been put up under the bridge and workers are on scene, but spokeswoman Lindsey Fedchyshyn said it's all part of an assessment that's expected to be completed at the end of March.

"There really isn't anything significant in terms of repairs going on, they're still assessing the bridge," she said Thursday in response to reports that the bridge is being repaired since a fire closed it to vehicle traffic last October.

Consultants have been brought on to help CN complete a report, which will tell the railway what the next steps are and what should be done with the bridge.

That information will be shared with the city of Thunder Bay and Fort William First Nation.

"We will absolutely be keeping all stakeholders up to date on next steps," Fedchyshyn said.
