Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Project

The Township of Centre Wellington is conducting a review of a bridge to address its advanced state of deterioration. The bridge (16-WG) is located within the former Township of West Garafraxa, and is illustrated on the key plan below. Bridge 16-WG is located on 5th Line between Wellington Road 19 and Sideroad 15 in the rural area to the north of Fergus. Bridge 16-WG is a single lane, single span concrete spandrel arch over Irvine Creek that was constructed circa 1910. At this time, due to poor condition, Bridge 16-WG is closed for public use.


The Study Process
The Study is being conducted in accordance with Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process (October 2000, as amended). The study will confirm and document the existing structural deficiencies and identify alternative solutions, including rehabilitation or replacement of the structure. The environmental impacts of each alternative will be evaluated and in consultation with the members of the public, agencies, and Indigenous Communities, a preferred bridge solution will be selected.

How to Participate
A key component of this study is public and agency consultation. An Online Public Open House is planned for late summer of 2021 and will be held to present the study findings and obtain public input. Details of the Online Open House will be advertised in the Wellington Advertiser and on this page closer to the date.
