2023 – Cunningham Bridge (east of Rge Rd 261) – bridge rehabilitation


Project Highlights

Located on Meadowview Drive east of Rge. Rd. 261, Bridge File (BF) 02212 is an existing two-span girder bridge on a concrete substructure crossing the Sturgeon River. This location was identified as a priority crossing due to its age and condition.

The rehabilitation to the 65-year-old Cunningham Bridge is comprehensive and will extend its service life for an estimated 25 years.

The bridge is now fully open! Thank you for your patience while we worked to improve and maintain Sturgeon County’s infrastructure.
