Starting on Monday, it will take a little longer to get over the Oldman River on Highway 3. The bridge is being reduced to one lane in each direction to allow for rehabilitation work.

A release from the province on Friday said traffic would be restricted to the westbound lanes, with one lane travelling in each direction.
