Medicine Hat drivers will have to contend with the closure of Finlay Bridge for the next couple of weeks.

The Environmental Utilities department says starting Friday morning (Oct. 19), the bridge will be closed for construction work at the 2nd Avenue and 2nd Street NE intersection.

Crews are carrying out upgrades to replace sections of water, sanitary sewer and storm infrastructure in the area.

Detours will be in place directing traffic to other river crossings, however, pedestrians will be able to cross as normal.

Motorists are asked to obey all signage and drive safely in this area.
