As granular road conversion work on Haldimand-Dunnville Townline Rd was progressing, crews observed cracking on the bridge’s exposed deck. Bridge engineers from G. Douglas Vallee Limited were called to inspect the structure and recommended that the bridge should be permanently closed.
Temporary road closure signage has been put in place, and a formal detour route will be set up in the coming days. Throughout the duration of the closure, there will be no vehicular or pedestrian traffic allowed over the bridge. The process to design a replacement structure will begin immediately.
It is anticipated that the bridge will be replaced & re-open to traffic in the fall of 2020. We appreciate your understanding and patience, and apologize for any inconvenience this closure may cause.
