Cloncurry's Carl Katter Bridge has now closed for six months while a replacement bridge is built.
This means Ernest Henry Rd is closed at the creek.
Access from town to the saleyards, the airport and beyond is via Railway St (local traffic only) or via Andrew Daniels Drive and Hensley Drive for heavy vehicles.
The new bridge is due to be opened December 22.
Cloncurry Shire Council thanked the public for their patience. "We can't wait for the new bridge," Council said on its Facebook page.
