The Town of Cochrane is beginning to replace the old 4th Avenue bridge close to the intersection with Ranche Road, the town announced today.

While construction is ongoing there will be no access crossing Big Hill Creek. For local traffic, there will be a temporary reopening of the closed portion of Ranche Road running in between 4th Ave. N and Sunset Drive.

There will be no parking along Ranche Road for safety purposes, and 4th Ave. N will be closed to vehicular traffic past Suntera Road until after the bridge at the intersection with Ranche Road.

The scheduled completion date for the new bridge is approximately one month.
