The closure at the Highway 582 bridge over the Rosebud River in Didsbury is still in place, according to Alberta Transportation. Alberta Transportation Bridge Manager Donald Saunders says the closure was unexpected and likely related to a heavy load going over the bridge earlier in October. Saunders anticipate the on site temporary bridge being built right now will be complete by approximately November 8th.
