Bridges 2 and 3, also known as the Mitchell’s Creek Bridges, are concrete monolithic T-beam bridges connected by a short stretch of 6th Sideroad on the western edge of the Little Germany Management Area. The bridges were originally constructed in the 1930’s. 

A Schedule A+ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment was undertook beginning in April 2019 to assess multiple factors including existing and future traffic operations in the area, the ability to span the water flow at the location, the sensitivity of the environment in the area. The assessment identified the preferred solution to be replacement of both Bridges 2 and 3 with new single-lane bridges. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2022.

Why Now?

The existing bridges are in poor condition with deteriorating walls and extensive exposed, rusted steel reinforcements. They have been given a 10-tonne load limit, and that limit will continue to decrease without rehabilitation.

Project Updates

February 9, 2023

The curbs and gutters have been installed, along with the barrier end panels and armour stone. Final excavation work and site cleanup has also been completed. However, due to production delays, a key piece required for the completion of Bridges 2 and 3 has been delayed. The Town's contractor is awaiting the delivery of the handrails which are expected near the end of February. Until then, the Town's contractor will be closing and blocking off both ends of the project site.
