A minor fire disrupted traffic this morning (Tuesday, November 17) on the bridge spanning the Ottawa River in Portage-du-Fort, on the borders of the provinces of Quebec and Ontario.
According to Transport Quebec, the fire was quickly brought under control and specialists went to the site to ensure the safety of motorists traveling there. The bridge, located on the Route des Chenaux, has been reopened to traffic since 9:30 am.
Since August, repair work has taken place on this bridge and alternating traffic takes place at all times. The work should be completed in December.
