Port Bruce Bridge Replacement
The County of Elgin’s Imperial Road (CR 73) Port Bruce Bridge was a three-span concrete structure constructed in 1964 that spanned Catfish Creek on Imperial Road in the village of Port Bruce, Ontario. On February 23, 2018, the existing structure collapsed as a truck traversed the structure.
The existing bridge has since been removed entirely except for the south abutment, pier footings, and deep foundations. A temporary bridge has been constructed downstream of the existing bridge until a new permanent structure is built on Imperial Road. The County of Elgin retained the services of K. Smart Associates Limited to undertake the preliminary engineering, environmental assessment, detailed design, inspection and administration for the replacement of the Port Bruce Bridge.
Start – February 18, 2020 Estimated Completion – December 2020* Top Coat Asphalt – Spring 2021*
* Please note that the timelines are approximate and will vary depending on weather and other factors.
The following Traffic Detour is currently established utilizing the temporary panel bridge, previously constructed across Catfish Creek using the Bank Street/Dexter Road alignment. It is anticipated the Traffic Detour will be further enhanced throughout the duration of the project for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. Resident, business, and beach access and in-water marine traffic clear passage will be maintained to the extent possible.
