Remember those long lines of traffic during construction on the Harbour Bridge last year? -- with the province now in control -- there may be some changes to planned work this year.
Transportation Minister Claude Williams tells CHSJ News he's hoping to avoid the traffic delays and frustration of last year.

Williams says the province is in talks with Dexter as it prepares to take over a section of Route 1 between the Maine border and Riverglade including the Harbour Bridge June 1st -- the Minister says it's possible the work on the east bound lanes may be spread over two years.
