Port Sandfield Swing Bridge Replacement, Port Sandfield, Ontario
Client: District Municipality of Muskoka
MRC was retained by the District Municipality of Muskoka to undertake the inspection, study of replacement options, environmental assessment, design and contract administration for the replacement of the existing single lane swing bridge built in the early 1900’s due to severe load restrictions on the existing steel truss structure.
The existing bridge was replaced by a new 40m bob-tailed swing span girder bridge. The new bridge has steel girders supporting a concrete deck.
The design included all electrical and mechanical systems as well as the design of a traffic detour to maintain traffic during construction.
