Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions this week on Lord St in Kempsey for load testing to be carried out on the old Kempsey Bridge.
Transport for NSW carries out load testing and maintenance on bridges as part of its regular maintenance schedule.
To minimise impact to motorists the work will be carried out overnight, with the bridge closed several times between 9pm on Friday December 6 and 6am on Saturday December 7.
Each closure will be up to 10 minutes in duration, with emergency services vehicles allowed across the bridge as required without delay.
Access to the bridge from Rudder St will be closed during the work with a signposted detour and traffic control in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
