Some slightly-ahead-of-schedule patching has slowed down traffic on the Taylor Bridge today.

After finding some small holes developing on the deck on the bridge last night, Yellowhead Road and Bridge pushed up its regular maintainance schedule, to ensure the holes didn’t become a traffic danger.

Bruce McKay, General Manager for Yellowhead Road and Bridge, says the bridge is scheduled for two weeks of welding every spring, and one every fall. [asset|aid=250|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=McKay-1_1_Pub.mp3]

McKay says the welding will cause some delays as crews complete the maintance. He expects the bridge to be restricted to one-lane traffic during daytime hours for approximately a week.

McKay reminds drivers to be careful when crossing the bridge, and always obey flagpersons.
