Bridge 037 (Rehabilitation)

This project was completed in November 2023 as part of the Municipality of Meaford's 2023 Capital Projects. 

The Municipality of Meaford is rehabilitating Bridge 037 located on Sykes Street North over Pete's Creek between Susan Street and Cook Street.  Originally built in 1975, the box culvert structure requires rehabilitation to extend the service life of the bridge and improve traffic safety. This project is being partially funded through Ministry of Transportation (MTO) grant funding.

 Project Description

The rehabilitation of Bridge 037 in 2023 will include:

  • Concrete repairs to the structure to ensure continued operation in future years;
  • Replacement of the barrier system on the structure to improve safety for vehicles and cyclists; and
  • Replacement of failed retaining structures
During construction, traffic may periodically be reduced to a single lane. Delays are to be expected and drivers are asked to be patient and careful when driving through construction zones and areas where people are working on or near the road. 
Sidewalk access on the west side of Sykes Street North will be periodically limited due to construction activities. Please take note of signed sidewalk closures in the area. Sidewalks on Cook Street, William Street, Thompson Street, and Susan Street can be used as alternative travel pathways. The Accessible Service Disruption Notice can be found below.
