Preliminary investigations and design feasibility have been conducted. Findings indicate that there may be an opportunity to take an alternative approach to remediate the existing bridge, which could potentially require less capital investment and substantively extend the useful life of the existing structure.
The next steps include a detailed condition review of the existing bridge, which will take place in early summer 2022 to better understand and assess options to extend the service life of the existing structure. The study is expected to be complete in late fall 2022.
The existing Keith Road Bridge, constructed in 1952, has reached the end of its service life and requires upgrading to modern seismic standards. Recent inspections have confirmed that the structure remains safe for use in the short term.
