Bridge 037 (Rehabilitation)

The Municipality of Meaford is proposing to rehabilitate Bridge 037.  The bridge is located on Sykes Street over Pete's Creek between Susan Street and Cook Street.  The box culvert structure requires rehabilitation to extend the service life of the bridge and replace the bridge barriers with new steel beam guiderails to improve traffic safety. This project is being partially funded through Ministry of Transportation (MTO) grant funding.
