Southwestern Ontario Bridges

Includes rehabilitation of eight structures within the counties of Essex and Kent. 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 Essex County Road 17 Underpass on Highway 401, County of Essex
  • Rehabilitation of Manning Road Underpass (Essex County Road 19) on Highway 401, County of Essex
  • Rehabilitation of Lakeshore Road 105 Underpass (Maidstone Concession Road 7) on Highway 401, County of Essex
