After the old steel girders were removed, repairs to the bridge piers were completed.
The micro-piles for the bridge abutments were installed, tested and accepted and then the east and west abutments were constructed.
Council approved the construction methodology and schedule of the bridge rehabilitation in the spring of 2016. Review a copy of the staff report to Council.
In advance of the bridge work, Navy Street between Rebecca/Randall Street is now open two-way traffic. For more information please visit the Downtown Oakville two-way traffic conversion project page.
Lakeshore Road will also be reconstructed from Navy Street to Forsyth Street while the roadway is closed. The reconstruction work will include streetscape enhancements as identified in the Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape project.
The town will be using the materials selected as part of the Lakeshore Road Streetscape Project.
Between December 5 and 23 we asked you to share your thoughts with us online or in person about: traditional streetscape furniture pieces; lighting (LED bulbs) for the streetlight poles; and the railing for the Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek.
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017 staff go to Heritage Oakville Advisory Committee regarding a permit application for the recommended pieces.
On Monday, February 13, 2017 staff go to Council for approval.
