In its annual publication intended for its taxpayers, the Municipality of Litchfield indicates that the bridge located on Crawford Road remains stable, but that regular inspections are carried out to monitor the safety of its structure.
“Council is considering either permanent improvements or a complete replacement of the bridge. This process is underway and numerous consultations have taken place. For now, we are awaiting recommendations from certified engineers to continue the project, ”writes the Municipality of Litchfield.
