Television Road Bridge Replacement

Road over creek

Late in 2016, the Television Road bridge over South Meade Creek had an Ontario Structure Inspection Manual assessment completed, which determined that the bridge was experiencing significant deterioration and replacement was necessary. The City started a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) in 2018 to plan the replacement of the bridge.

The Class EA process is used by Municipalities to plan infrastructure projects that are identified in the Class EA document. The process includes public, agency and stakeholder engagement. As part of the EA, Public Information Centre #1 was held in the fall of 2019 and the consultation material was subsequently posted on the City website.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the remaining consultation program will shift to an online format.

The second Public Information Centre displays are now available for review. These displays provide study information, decision making process and the recommendations of the study team. Comments and ideas shared during Public Information Centre #2 will be used to help inform the study recommendations before the study is finalized and reported to City Council.

Anyone with an interest in this project is encouraged to share their ideas with the project team. All questions, comments and ideas shared with the project team will become part of the public record. With the exception of personal information all comments, questions and ideas will be documented within the final project report.

    As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Public Information Centre #2 is being held entirely online.

    Public Information Centre #2 displays will be available for members of the public, agencies and stakeholders to comment on, ask questions and share their ideas until August 25, 2021. As with Public Information Centre #1, we encourage anyone who has an interest in this study to get involved and share their ideas with the project team.

    Public Information Centre #2 details the study process, alternatives considered, preliminary evaluations and recommendations, recommended design and mitigation measures. In general terms, the study has recommended the existing bridge be replaced. The replacement bridge would be constructed to the east of the existing bridge. This allows the existing bridge to remain open until the new bridge is constructed and ready for use.

    The new bridge is recommended to be wider than the existing bridge so that pedestrian and cycling infrastructure can be included and so that additional lanes of travel could be added in the future. This widening will support future widening of Television Road if it's needed. The length of the bridge is also recommended to be increased to protect the bridge from flooding.

    More specific details are available in the Public Information Centre #2 displays.
