On Feb. 15, Puslinch Mayor Dennis Lever told councillors he had recently discovered Niska Road is to be closed as of Feb. 28.
Lever noted that about one year ago a delegation from the city of Guelph approached council.
At that time Puslinch councillors voiced concern about the bridge widening and the potential of increased traffic.
Lever quipped that traffic on one of the township’s busier roads “is about to drop to zero.”
To his knowledge, there was no definition as to how long the bridge will be closed.
Director of public works Don Creed added the bridge is not only closed to vehicular traffic, but to pedestrians and cyclists as well.
