The Hwy 2 Kennedy Bridge over the Red River, built in 1963, is being evaluated to determine the long-term plan for maintaining this important crossing. A range of options for rehabilitation of the bridge to potential replacement will be studied. Input from local residents will be used to help define the objectives and potential impacts of the project by understanding the needs of its users.
