Southdale Line Bridge B416 Rehab - September Update

21 Sep 2020

On August 17th Clearwater Structures and R.J. Burnside & Associates Limited began construction on the Southdale Line Bridge between Quaker Road and Springwater Road. Clearwater Structures is responsible for the reconstruction of the structure. R.J. Burnside & Associates Limited is responsible for the engineering re-design of the bridge and site inspection. A general overview of the work being completed is: replacing deck, new concrete abutments, fixing members, and a repave. There will be no removal of trees and no disturbance of Catfish Creek. The original completion date was November 24th 2020, but due to changes in the contract the new completion date will be December 22nd 2020. The completion date has changed mainly because of concrete repairs to the abutment, and additional repairs to corroded transverse steel angles at abutments.

Clearwater Structures has been progressing well during the project. Competed tasks include:

  • Traffic control signage
  • Erosion control and Catfish Creek protection
  • Bridge deck removal along with the members underneath the base of the bridge
  • Asphalt removals at approach to bridge
  • Abutment and wing wall concrete removals and new forms placed
