The Cst. John Verral Memorial Bridge spans Patterson Creek along Queensway East in Simcoe, Ontario. The existing bridge was designed in 1922 with a concrete deck supported by steel girders and concrete abutments. It was widened in 1956, and again in 1977 to its current 4-lane width with sidewalks. The structure underwent a major rehabilitation in 1992. The structure has exceeded the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code life expectancy of 75 years, and is due for a rehabilitation or replacement.
This Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) will determine the preferred solution and provide a recommended design for this project. The process will consider:
- The natural and physical environment,
- The transportation environment,
- The economic environment, and
- The social and cultural environment.
