Some residents in the RM of Franklin no longer have access across the Roseau River.

The bridge along PR 200 North of Dominion City has been closed because one of the piers has begun to shift.

Reeve Archie Hunter says the situation is critical because a number of their rate payers do not have access to emergency services.

Hunter says the RM is pushing for the installation of a bailey bridge as a temporary measure.


Hunter says the municipality has implemented its emergency measures plan in an effort to provide emergency service to about 12 households located immediatly North of Dominion City along the Roseau and PR 200.
