All of the City’s bridges are inspected every two years following OSIM (Ontario’s Structural Inspection Manual) to ensure they are kept in good condition. The structure at Lakeshore Road over the Credit River was constructed in 1960, rehabilitated in 2007 and has undergone periodic maintenance. The next scheduled OSIM inspection is to take place this spring.
This structure is currently scheduled for rehabilitation in 2022. Leading up to the rehabilitation we will be initiating detailed condition survey and design work in 2020. This will include conducting a detailed analysis of the structure’s load capacity and fatigue investigation.
