Bruce Highway closed in Gympie today
THE Bruce Highway will be temporarily closed at the Normanby overpass in Gympie today for an inspection.
Wide Bay Burnett District Director Hendrik Roux said the bridge would be closed from 9.30am to 2pm weather permitting.
"Structural engineers need to further inspect the Normanby overpass after it was struck last year," Mr Roux said.
"During the inspection, Bruce Highway motorists will be detoured via the on and off-ramps at the overpass."
Mr Roux said the 17-tonne load limit and reduced 40km/h speed limit would remain in place across the overpass until it could be repaired.
