Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a large example of an uncommon bridge type in Ontario, an open spandrel concrete arch bridge. Like this bridge, most examples of this bridge type are found in the GTA and nearby areas. This particular example was built in 1934, but widened in 1960 to accommodate ever-increasing QEW traffic. The bridge was again rehabilitated in 2013, and a steel beam construction access deck was added under the bridge. Although significantly altered, the added concrete arch ribs were designed to match the appearance of the 1934 arch ribs, which remain in the center of the bridge. For this reason, the bridge was considered an official heritage bridge during studies for the 2013 project.
