Meaford Announces Construction Delays for Bakeshop Bridge Rehabilitation

The Municipality of Meaford has announced that the rehabilitation project for Bakeshop Bridge, otherwise known as structure 030, has experienced delays that have prevented work from continuing for a period of time.

These delays included 7-10 rain days, as well as the replacement of an aluminum watermain hanger which required specialized fabrication that took over 2 weeks. Another delay was caused by missing thrust blocks behind the concrete abutments, which are now mandatory in any new construction and required engineering and fabrication that took over 3 weeks.

The project is now expected to be completed by late October. A revised project schedule is still being developed between the contractor, engineering consultant and internal project manager.
