Bronk Road Bridge Replacement
The Bronk Road Bridge is located on Bronk Road 0.2 km north of Thrasher Road. The bridge is a single lane, single span over water crossing constructed with cast-in place concrete T-beams that was initially constructed in 1930. The span length is 11.9m and the overall structure width is 6.2m. The structures roadway width is 4.9m, which provides one (1) lane for vehicular traffic.
The City’s Municipal Structure Inventory and Inspection Report dated January 2011 identified the Bronk Road Bridge as priority number three (3) requiring $230,000 worth of rehabilitation work within the next 1 to 5 years and ultimate replacement within the next 6 to 10 years at an additional estimated cost of $500,000. Rather than spend the funds to rehabilitate the structure in the short term it was determined that it would be prudent to investigate in more detail all available rehabilitation options for this structure including replacement with a new structure. Therefore this Municipal Class Environmental Assessment is being completed to determine and evaluate the best alternative to proceed with to detail design and ultimately construction.
