Project Update - November 2022
The preliminary design has been completed. The replacement bridge will consist of a 4.2 m wide, three-span wood bridge with steel piers. The new bridge is designed to match the look and feel of the original bridge, and to align with current design standards and user needs, site constraints, minimizing environmental impacts and ensuring the replacement of the structure quickly and efficiently.
Feedback from the community and stakeholders was considered in the design, including respecting the look and feel of the original bridge, ensuring the safety of all users year-round, and replacing the bridge as quickly as possible.
The bridge will include an upgraded railing to ensure the safety of all users. The scope of the project also includes new lighting and restoration of the natural landscape. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2023.
