Winnipeg’s Arlington Bridge has reopened after city crews patched a hole in the road.

The city tweeted the bridge was open to traffic shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday.

Police had sent out a tweet flagging the issue about half an hour after the problem was identified.

“There’s a hole in the road,” Const. Rob Carver said. “We’ve notified works and ops and they’ll be sending out people — they have a 24-hour emergency ability because things do happen to streets outside of regular hours.”

In a statement Sunday afternoon, the City of Winnipeg said the bridge could reopen later in the day — noting crews were out patching the asphalt that had detached from the road.
