Project Description

The Finlay Bridge resurfacing project involves the replacement of the existing asphalt surface with a more durable concrete surface.

In combination with the bridge re-surfacing, repairs to the bridge abutments and bearings will also be completed.

Timing & Traffic Accommodations

Construction will begin on Wednesday, June 24 and is expected to be completed by the end of September 2020.
During construction, the bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic. Detours will be in place.

At least one sidewalk will remain open to pedestrian traffic.


The surface asphalt is being replaced with a more durable concrete surface, which will improve the smoothness of the bridge deck and extend the service life of the bridge.


Future updates will be provided here, by public advisory and on the City’s social media channels.


Motorists are reminded to follow all traffic signs and detours around Finlay Bridge related to the ongoing construction.

A fence will be placed around the construction area to ensure public safety and pedestrian access around the construction area.


The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents and businesses for their continued patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed, helping to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
