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. Phase 2 of the project is scheduled for April / May 2023.

For safety reasons, the bridge will need to be temporarily closed to all traffic during construction work from April 18 until June 9, 2023. A single lane will open to traffic, with barricades and signals, on June 10 until July 22, 2023.

Weather permitting, rehabilitation is expected to be done by July 27, 2023.
