R.V. Anderson Associates Limited (RVA) was retained to undertake the design, contract administration and inspection for the reconstruction and widening of Victoria Road from Stone Road to York Road. The project included:
The bridge was replaced in two stages to maintain two lanes of traffic during construction. The bridge replacement won the Ontario Public Works Association’s Project of the Year Award for Transportation Projects for $2–10 Million.
The Eramosa River is a highly sensitive area that required a number of issues to be addressed, including soil contamination on the north side of the river near the existing industrial site, rock face on the south side of the river that is susceptible to erosion, migratory birds using the original bridge structure for nesting, frequent use of the trail below the existing bridge by pedestrians and cyclists, and the frequent use of the river by canoeists.
To minimize impacts to the river, a design with no piers in the water was implemented, and various methods were used to minimize debris or sediment from entering the river. A pile foundation design was selected for the north pier where contaminated soils were found, to eliminate dewatering during the construction.
