Southern Heights Bridge Replacement: Approaching completion

Posted on December 6, 2021


Project completion is fast approaching for the Southern Heights Bridge Replacement construction project with all the major components now in place. Minor items such as paving, bridge lighting, tree planting, street fencing, and other items have also been recently completed. This will be a major milestone for a project that has been in the works for more than seven years. Some of the key elements of this project are shown in the timeline below. The bridge is anticipated to be opened to traffic before the end of December.

The City is currently working with its design/geotechnical consultant to prepare a slope stability analysis for the area underneath the bridge deck to determine whether additional erosion control measures might be needed than what was already installed as part of the bridge construction project.
