BEHIND THE SCENES: Is the Highway 11/17 Walking Bridge becoming another Second Avenue Tunnel issue?

Recently BayToday reporter Chris Dawson sat down with Scott Sexsmith to go behind the scenes on the situation that some are calling unsafe for students and others

According to the North Bay Police, they will take prompt action to address any threats to public safety on the Highway 11/17 walking bridge.

On Sunday morning, the bridge had to be temporarily shut down due to a fire that was reportedly ignited by squatters trying to stay warm, as stated by the North Bay Fire Department.

Despite the shutdown, a few squatters were still present as contractors from the Ministry of Transportation worked on making a temporary repair for the fire-damaged floor.
