G. Douglas Vallee Limited is currently working on the Pyle Driveway Bridge deck replacement near Lowbanks, ON. Prior to construction, the superstructure showed signs of severe deterioration (shown above), and the structure had a load restriction implemented. The deck has now been replaced with a prefabricated steel superstructure (shown above). This approach revitalizes the structure while using the existing abutments, and minimizes bridge closure time. Through this process, the bridge was out-of-service for only 34 hours! Construction is now complete, and the bridge is open for use.

G. Douglas Vallee Limited is currently working on the rehabilitation of Dennis Bridge in Walpole, ON. This project is in progress with Haldimand County as the client. The rehabilitation is underway, with bridge jacking and bearing replacement already complete! Recently, the rehabilitation of the concrete deck and the deck overlay pour were completed (pictured). Work to be completed includes asphalt laying, barrier installation, expansion joint installation, steel beam painting, and other finishing items. Construction is generally on schedule with an expected completion date this fall.

Andrew has been working at our office since 2014 in the summer as a high school student and continued through university.
