On April 28, the repair of the road swing bridge across the White Sea-Baltic Canal highway on the A-119 Vologda-Medvezhyegorsk highway was completed, the Administration of the White Sea-Onega Basin of Inland Waterways reports.

At the time of repairs, vehicles were allowed on a temporary bypass road through the Belomorkanal highway. The road was often washed out, which led to many kilometers of traffic jams. It was difficult to overcome this section and trucks.

Previously, the work was extended until April 30, but the contractor “Construction Trust No. 4” coped with it earlier.

“The swing road bridge has been brought into a standard state and ensures safe passage of vehicles weighing not more than 45 tons in one-way traffic,” the BBK administration said.
