Southwestern Ontario Bridges

Includes rehabilitation of 5 structures on Highways 23, 9, 4, and 21 within the counties of Bruce, Middlesex and Perth. The majority of the proposed work consists of bridge rehabilitation work that can be undertaken within the right-of-way and may result in minimal short duration impacts to the natural, social and cultural environment. Construction staging and traffic management may be required at the structure site(s) listed below, which would have short duration impacts to the travelling public.

  • Rehabilitation of North Penetangore River Bridge on Highway 21, Bruce County
  • Rehabilitation of  Teeswater River Bridge on Highway 9, Bruce County
  • Rehabilitation of Little Maitland River Bridge, Highway 23, Perth County
  • Rehabilitation of Maitland River Bridge on Highway 23, Perth County
  • Rehabilitation of Ausable River Bridge on Highway 4, Middlesex County

Construction of the Contract 5 improvements is expected to begin in 2017 and 2018, subject to funding and approvals.
