The Town of Bracebridge is looking to the province for help with an estimated $2 million bridge replacement.

On Tuesday, the Town’s General Committee agreed to request up to $1.8 million in provincial funding.

The money will go towards the replacement of the Black Bridge, located on Matthiasville Road over the Muskoka River. The historic bridge has been deemed to have structural issues and must be replaced.

The Black Bridge Replacement Project is currently undergoing an environmental assessment that is expected to be completed in August. After that’s finished, a request for proposals will be issued for the design and engineering component of the project. Construction is expected to begin in May 2019.
