Replacement of the Argyle Street Grand River Bridge in Caledonia

Detailed Design

The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) has retained WSP to undertake the Detailed Design and Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the replacement of the Argyle Street Bridge over the Grand River in Caledonia, Haldimand County, Ontario.

The existing nine-span concrete arch bridge that carries Argyle Street across the Grand River is a landmark structure in Caledonia. Built in 1927, the structure is now posted with weight restrictions for vehicles crossing the bridge. The bridge will be replaced with a new five-span steel arch bridge. Provincial Class EA approval for the replacement of the Argyle Street Bridge was obtained in the Fall of 2009, following a thorough evaluation of rehabilitation and replacement alternatives.

This Detailed Design and Class EA will follow the approved environmental planning process for Group “B” projects under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). The study will build upon the information collected during the Preliminary Design phase and will include:

External agency and public consultation will take place throughout the study. Upon completion, a Design and Construction Report (DCR) will be prepared and published for a 30-day public review period.
