New Road to Boulevard Road
Deterioration of the existing concrete deck has caused the bridge to become structurally deficient.
This project involves replacement of the concrete deck with a new concrete deck and barriers, replacing the bearings, elimination of joints on the bridge, strengthening the piers, cleaning and painting of steel members, and repair of cracks and spalls in the concrete piers and abutments. Additional work includes extension of the sidewalk on the east side of the bridge from New Road to Boulevard Road.
Design work will be completed summer 2017
Phase 1 of Construction began in late March 2018 and will continue until late summer 2018. (With Detour)
Phase 2 of construction is scheduled from late summer 2018 through winter 2019. (Bridge open with one lane in each direction)
Construction will be done in two stages. For the first stage, traffic will be detoured using Faulkland Road, Centre Road, and Kirkwood Highway. In the second stage, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction. Pedestrian access to the bridge will be maintained throughout construction.
