Bracebridge is looking the province again for help replacing another ageing bridge.

Town staff is applying for up to $1.8 million of provincial funding to replace Black Bridge. The Matthiasville bridge has significant structural issues that need to be addressed now. The overall project is expected to cost about $2 million. If all goes well, shovels could be in the ground by next May.

Bracebridge was able to secure provincial funding for a joint bridge replacement project with Huntsville on Stephenson Road 1. That project was completed last year.
