#Guelph Niska Road Bridge Closed for Repairs
The above screw is from the Niska Road Bridge. This is why it needs to be repaired. Because I’d rather have this in my hand – not my tire or yours.
Guelph, ON, April 14, 2015—Following a recent inspection, deck boards on the Niska Road bridge will be replaced beginning April 20. These repairs will keep the bridge in service while the City completes the Environmental Assessment and determines a permanent solution for Niska Road and the bridge.
“During regular spring road patrols, City staff noticed flaws in the deck boards on the Niska Road bridge,” noted Kealy Dedman, General Manager Engineering and Capital Infrastructure Services. “A bridge management consultant was hired to assess damage to the deck and recommended replacement of the boards.”
Temporary repairs were completed on March 9 and April 1, 2015.
The bridge will be closed for repairs from April 20 to May 1, 2015. During the bridge closure and repairs, the scheduled 2015 bridge condition assessment will be undertaken.
