While traveling, I decided to take the long way around the Miramichi because the Centennial Bridge had too much traffic to wait.
When I reached the Newcastle side, I realized much of Douglastown traffic chose to do the same thing!
The line ups were still long regardless of amount of traffic avoiding the bridge. I captured a video which gives a small taste of what to expect when the bridge completely closes in 2019.
Of course when the bridge is completely closed there will be a lot more traffic. City officials should be focusing on planning for a solution to the congestion now.
What do you think should be done to plan for the closure?
