G. Douglas Vallee Limited is excited to announce our teaming with Archaeological Research Associates Ltd. for the Strategic Conservation Plan for the Henley Bridge on the QEW! The Henley Bridge is the highest scored heritage bridge in Ontario, and is a designated heritage bridge of provincial significance.

The Henley Bridge is famous for its hand-carved stone monuments, as well as its association with rowing and the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta; the bridge was also officially 'opened' by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) in 1939 while still under construction. This formidable open spandrel concrete arch bridge also marks the gateway to the very first divided highway built in North America.

We are honoured to be selected and proud to perform this important heritage work for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.

G. Douglas Vallee Limited is pleased to provide an update with the ongoing work for the bridge on Highway 19 (Simcoe-Oxford Street) spanning the Big Otter Creek in downtown Tillsonburg. Stage 2 of the project has begun, and we are happy to report that work is continuing on schedule and on budget.

Douglas Vallee Limited since we began working with the municipality as their Bridge Engineer-of-Record in 2009. This is a testament to our decade-long record of giving our best to Haldimand County - completing superior work on time and on budget. We're looking forward to the next five years!
