Replacement of the Argyle Street Grand River Bridge in Caledonia

Detail Design

The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) retained WSP to undertake the Detail 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 Detail Design and Class EA followed the approved environmental planning process for Group “B” projects under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). The study was built upon the information collected during the Preliminary Design phase and included:

External agency and public consultation took place throughout the study. A Design and Construction Report (DCR) was prepared and was available for a 30-day public review period from March 11 to April 10, 2020. A copy of the DCR is available on the project website by clicking here.
