Bay Bridge Road/CPR Overhead Replacement & Dundas Street West Rehabilitation
Bay Bridge Road and Dundas Street West
11 Bay Bridge Rd, Belleville
The Bay Bridge Road / CPR Overhead Replacement portion was funded entirely through the Federal Gas Tax Fund. The Dundas Street West portion of the project was cost-shared, on a one-third basis, between the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario and the CIty of Belleville, under the Small Communities Fund.
This project includes the replacement of the existing structure Bay Bridge Road which crosses over the Canadian Pacific Railway with a new structure on a new alignment. The project also includes the reconstruction of the Dundas Street West/ Bay Bridge Road intersection and rehabilitation of Dundas Street West including the addidtion of turning lanes.
The City of Belleville has identified the replacement of the Bay Bridge Road CP Rail Overhead Structure and reconstruction of Dundas Street West, Coleman Street to Bay Bridge Road as a Build Belleville initialtive.
The work on Dundas Street West included widening to accommodate dual westbound left turn lanes at the new intersection coinciding with the new alignment of Bay Bridge Road and CP Rail overhead replacement which is located immediately east of the previous structure. It also included a new north bound lane to accommodate dual north bound left turn lanes to improve traffic operations and reduce delay at the intersection. In addition to the intersection widening, the roadway was improved and widened to James Street. The widening allowed for the introduction of a center lane. In conjuction with the road work a multi-use path was constructed on Dundas Street West, Coleman Street to the new overhead structure and underneath the new overpass structure to connect the trails on East & West Zwick's Park.
The project also included the replacement of the existing 450mm diameter cast iron watermain on Dundas Street West constructed in 1931 which was at the end of its service life.
Thank you for your patience during construction.
