The Trafalgar Road overpass is in need of repair. To ensure the continued safety of this overpass, the following repairs are being done:

  • Repairs to the bridge deck, including repaving the portion of Trafalgar Road that passes over the bridge
  • Waterproofing the bridge deck to protect the concrete from moisture and salt damage to extend the life of the overpass
  • Repairs and improvements to the concrete portions of the bridge, including the bridge deck and the supporting walls and columns, and to the concrete areas between the road and the bridge

In addition to the repairs, additional enhancements are being made to improve accessibility and safety for pedestrians:

  • Widening both sides of the overpass by 0.3 metres to accommodate wider sidewalks for pedestrians
  • Allowing a 0.45m buffer zone between the sidewalk and the road to improve pedestrian safety
