North Canal Overpass Structure Replacement Study
Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, County of Simcoe
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment study for Preliminary Design and the initiation of Detail Design for the replacement of the Highway 400 bridges over the North Canal of the Holland Marsh in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, County of Simcoe.
The Preliminary Design component of the study was initiated as part of a larger study that included the future expansion of Highway 400. The study was documented in the Highway 400 Planning Study from the South Canal Bridge Northerly to 1 km South of Highway 89 Transportation Environmental Study Report that received Environmental Assessment clearance in the Winter of 2004.
Since 2004, there have been changes in the study area, including the realignment of the North Canal and updated information about the condition of the bridges. These changes led to the initiation of this study. As part of this study, an addendum to the previous report will be prepared and made available for a 30-day public review period. A Public Information Centre for this project is currently planned for the fall of 2015 to display and seek input on the proposed improvements. Details regarding the proposed improvements will be available on this website, which will be maintained for the duration of the study and updated as new information becomes available. You are encouraged to check for updates at your convenience.
