Construction Delay on Bakeshop Bridge

Meaford, Ontario – September 12, 2017 – The rehabilitation project for structure 030, otherwise known as Bakeshop Bridge, has experienced delays that have prevented work from continuing.

These delays include 7-10 rain days, as well as the replacement of an aluminum watermain hanger which required specialized fabrication that took over 2 weeks. Another delay was caused by missing thrust blocks behind the concrete abutments, which are now mandatory in any new construction and required engineering and fabrication that took over 3 weeks.

The project is now expected to be completed by late October. A revised project schedule is still being developed between the contractor, engineering consultant and internal project manager.
