Work on repairing the two bridges in Ritchie Falls Road will start September 14th.

Minden Hills council awarded the contract at yesterday’s council meeting for just over $477,000.

In an e-mail to the My Haliburton Now newsroom, Minden Roads Superintendent Travis Wilson says the work will be complete by December 22nd the latest

Wilson also mentions Ritchie Falls Road will be re-opened to traffic well before then.

Rehab work for the Soyer Lake Road is also included in the contract.
