MIR-BRIDGE UPDATE

You may notice something strange about the Centennial Bridge during your
morning commute.

For the first time in eight months, the bridge is expected to have all lanes
open to traffic. The first phase of a planned 83-million-dollar refit is now
complete. That means planned overnight closures are no longer necesary. The
only possible delays now would be from workers packing up their equipment.

A part from all lanes being open you may also notice something else different
about the bridge – for the first time in 50 years it’s now all one colour.
