Ritchie Falls Road will be closed to traffic until November 1st.

The Township of Minden Hills will be replacing Bridge B and that will cause a detour for residents.

The Haliburton Rail Trail is open to vehicular traffic as the detour route.

Minden approved the bridge repairs in August for over $477,000 as part of work on the second Ritchie Falls Road Bridge, as well as some work on Soyers Lake Road.

There is no word on when work on when the rest of the work will begin.
