Replacement of existing wooden bridge with a new structure.
Located at the intersection of Ranche Road and Fourth Avenue North
October 6, 2022: The new bridge is now open for use, and provides a safe and accessible route for motorists and pedestrians, improving connectivity in our community.
The existing bridge was constructed in 1953 (69 years old) using wood plies and wooden timbers for the superstructure and deck. The service life of timber span bridges are typically about 45 years. Recent bridge inspections have indicated that bridge should be replaced.
HOW WILL THIS PROJECT BENEFIT THE COMMUNITY?
Focus on safety and improving infrastructure that is past its service life.
