Bridge 045 (Campbell Bridge) Rehabilitation 

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

The Municipality of Meaford has completed bridge work on Bridge 045, located on Sideroad 13, just east of Grey Road 12.  The rehabilitation was required to extend the service life of the structure and replacement of bridge barriers and new steel beam guiderails to improve traffic safety. As the work was being completed, Sideroad 13 was closed at the site of the structure for construction activities. This roadway has now reopened to traffic.

 Project Description

Bridge 045 (Campbell Bridge) is located on Sideroad 13, east of County Road 12 over the Big Head River. The bridge consists of a three span, concrete slab on precast girder superstructure supported on concrete abutments and piers with a total deck length of 45.0 metres and overall width of 9.75 metres. Engineering for the rehabilitation was completed in 2021 to 95% and engineering to completeness and construction works is occurring in 2023. The rehabilitation will include patch repair of deteriorated concrete, new roadside safety devices, water proofing of the bridge structure, replacement of expansion joints and modifying the deck drains. The road will be closed at the bridge to all through traffic throughout the duration of construction.

As of August 22, 2023, the rehabilitation work on Bridge 045 has been completed one week earlier than anticipated and within the projected budget. All impacted roadways have reopened to traffic.
