Bridges to be upgraded

Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Structure Improvements

As part of the Town of Caledon's Asset Management Strategy, improvements are being considered for bridges and culverts.
This is due to the wear and tear on existing infrastructure due to increased traffic and use.

The Town has initiated a Schedule ‘B’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider options for improvements to the
following bridges. The approximate location of the project is shown on the map.

Patterson Side Road Bridge (1)

For improvements to the existing 2 lane, T-beam reinforced cast-in-place structure constructed in 1950 and located approximately 0.1 km West of Duffy’s Lane over the Humber River.

Patterson Side Road Bridge (2)

For improvements to the existing 2 lane, rigid frame, vertical leg reinforced cast-in-place structure constructed in 1950 and
located approximately 0.03 km East of Duffy’s Lane over the Humber River.

Duffy's Lane Bridge

For feasibility investigation to determine future management of the existing 2 lane structure. The structure is located  approximately 0.03km South of Patterson Side Road over the Humber River.

The process

The project is being planned under the Municipal Class EA process (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. 

At the end of the study, the process will be documented in a Project File Report (PFR), prepared for public review. 

Public input

The public is invited to provide comments for consideration in the planning and design of the project. A virtual Public Information Centre (PIC) is planned for Spring 2021. Further notice will be provided closer to the date of the PIC. Subject to comments received and obtaining the necessary approvals, the Town of Caledon intends to proceed with the planning and design of the
project, with a construction date to be determined dependent on funding.
