Bridges 2-WG, 3-E, 5-E, and 7-E combined Bridge & Transportation Network Study

A Bridge & Transportation Network Study is now underway. On June 10, 2024, a report was brought to Council outlining a study has been initiated that will evaluate the role of these structures within the overall transportation network and connectivity in the local community and determine the most suitable alternative at each location.

The Project

The Township of Centre Wellington is conducting a review of bridges 2-WG, 3-E, 5-E, and 7-E in a combined Bridge & Transportation Network Study. These structures are currently closed to vehicular traffic or have a posted load limit due to their deteriorated state. The goal of the study is to identify preferred alternatives for these bridges and recommend next steps.

As this study progresses the communities will be engaged through public meetings and outreach.


The Study Process

The Study is being conducted in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (March 2023, as amended) process. The Bridge & Transportation Network Study will confirm and document the existing structural deficiencies and identify alternative solutions, including removal and permanent closure, rehabilitation, or replacement of the structure. The environmental impacts of each alternative will be evaluated and a technically preferred alternative will be selected in consultation with the public, agencies, and Indigenous Communities.
