Hartland covered bridge to be replaced with modular bridge

Hartland — The historic Hartland covered bridge is scheduled to be demolished this summer after several shingles blew off during a recent wind storm.

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure announced that the cost of replacing the shingles was simply not in the budget, and that the entire bridge will need to be replaced with something cheaper and easier to maintain: a modular bridge.

The community of Hartland has demanded to know why the government has chosen to replace the entire bridge rather than simply replacing the dislodged shingles. Minister Bill Fraser visited the region to advise the public that the government had no other options.
