(WINDSOR, ON) – Rehabilitation to a bridge over the west end rail yards will keep Wyandotte closed for at least three months from Crawford in the west to Caron in the east. Work on the project will be done in two phases.
On April 17 the eastbound lanes were shutdown. Once the work on the south side of the bridge is completed, the north side, westbound lane will be closed while simultaneously the eastbound will be reopened.
The work to be done is extensive.
A request for tenders revealed the scope will include removing the, “… existing bridge deck waterproofing, pavement, approach slabs, ballast walls, and expansion joint system. Partial depth concrete removals and repairs to abutments, wing-walls, deck, soffit, and fascia. Bridge jacking and removal and replacement of existing bearing pads. Construction of new approach slabs, ballast walls, expansion joint system, and bridge deck waterproofing and paving.”
The bridge allows Wyandotte traffic to cross over the northern extreme of the Canadian Pacific shunting yard, which extends from University Avenue to Tecumseh Road. The lowest bid to carry-out the work was from Front Construction Industries. The bid was $1,129,600.
Amico Infrastructures was highest at $1, 676,700.
