 Project Description

Structure 031 - Trowbridge St. Bridge is located over the Bighead River at the Meaford Harbour. This structure consists of a two span, concrete arch rigid frame structure supported on concrete abutments and pier. The bridge has a total deck length of 39.3 metres, spans of 13.7 metres each and overall width of 9.6 metres. The structure provides a 7.1 metre wide driving platform between curbs.

The proposed rehabilitation includes:

  • repair pier undermining and damage caused by scour
  • install scour protection for pier
  • remove asphalt and waterproofing
  • concrete repairs to bridge deck, fascia, curbs, sidewalks, abutments, and
  • replacement of the barrier system
  • replacement of missing sheet pile wall cap
  • waterproofing and paving of bridge deck and approaches
  • remove and replace existing watermain and appurtenances
  • replacement of watermain insulation

The opportunity to add a sidewalk to the North side of the bridge is being examined to improve safety at the intersection of Trowbridge Street and Bayfield Street and to improve movement of pedestrians around the waterfront area.


The total budget for this rehabilitation project is estimated at $1,683,000. The prposed funding for the project is as follows:

  • 2020 Tax Levy: $1,322,000
