The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and its contractor, Dufferin Construction Company, has begun repair work to the Argyle Street Bridge. The project is anticipated to be complete in August 2019. The work includes the addition of structural steel support beams to three spans of the bridge.
May 22, 2019 Update:
The Westerly (upstream) sidewalk closure will be installed this week. Pedestrian detour signage will be in place at the Riverwalk, Argyle and Caithness, and at the southerly end of the bridge.
Overnight closures will begin the week of June 3. The bridge will be completely closed at night for the week of June 3 to 7 and June 10 to 14. The closures will be from 9:15pm to 6:00 am. The Friday night closure will be from 9:00 PM to 7:00 am. The remaining closures can be expected closer to the end of the project
The MTO has coordinated with county emergency services to ensure that a response plan is in place for the closures.
The bridge will remain open to traffic during the day, with only very short duration closures for the delivery of material. During that time, flagmen will be in place to direct traffic.
Project updates, including any changes to detour routes, will be posted here as they are provided by the MTO.
