Bridge 045 (Campbell Bridge) Rehabilitation 

The Municipality of Meaford is completing bridge work on Bridge 045, which is located on Sideroad 13, just east of Grey Road 12.  The rehabilitation is required to extend the service life of the structure and replacement of bridge barriers and new steel beam guiderails to improve traffic safety. The work will require the closure of the structure during construction (May to September 2023).  The project is not expected to impact navigation of the Big Head River and has been registered on the Common Project Search website as described by the Canadian Navigable Water Act.
