Progress is underway for McCutcheon Bridge in Vankoughnet. Walt Schmid, Bracebridge’s Public Works Director says tree removal and brushing will start this week before bridge construction starts mid July. The bridge is being replaced with a wider Bailey Bridge Structure, which Schmid says should help to prevent flooding. The existing bridge will remain in place, while the new one is being built. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of August, weather permitting.
