News Bruce Ave. bridge to be replaced SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Tuesday, Apr. 6th, 2021 City council is expected to approve a bid for design and contract administration for the Bruce Ave. bridge at tonight’s regular meeting. (Mark Rogers, Near North Video Productions) Any driver who stays right at the Bruce Y in South Porcupine will like the sound of this: the bridge over Porcupine Creek is going to be replaced. City council has approved design and contract administration for the project, as well as for a replacement culvert on Moose Creek, in the rural east end. That will all cost $279,000.00. It was budgeted at $450,000.00, so public works director Pat Séguin says the balance will be used for paving streets around the city. Following various studies and approvals, bridge construction is expected in 2023. NOTE: An earlier version of this story said the Bruce Ave. bridge crosses Moose Creek. We apologize for the confusion.
