The annual headaches on Saint John’s Harbour Bridge are about to return for another year.

Construction work is set to resume on Tuesday, April 2, as part of a multi-phase project.

That means the bridge will be down to one lane in each direction for several months.

The Chesley Drive on-ramp to the bridge will be closed, but the off-ramp will remain open.

“Delays are expected for traffic in both directions approaching the bridge during this period,” said a post on the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure’s website.

The lane reductions are expected to remain in place until Nov. 30, according to the department.

The four-phase project began in 2021 and is expected to continue through 2026. It has a total price tag of $26.4 million.
