Better late than never for bridge re-opening

With repairs completed, the Morgan Bridge reopened to traffic Friday.

The opening was behind schedule but traffic is again flowing over a bridge in the north Okanagan.

The Morgan Bridge on the Heywood-Armstrong Road near Spallumcheen was washed out by flooding this past spring.

It was expected to be repaired a month ago.

But that date was pushed back because extra pilings had to be put in due to unexpected soil conditions.

The bridge opened Friday to motorists.
