The Bridge 5 Survey concluded on:
Bridge 5 is nearing the end of its useful life and Town of Mono’s Council needs your help in determining its future*. The single lane bridge is located on a portion of Hurontario Street that is currently for seasonal use only as winter service levels are not viable given the topography of the area and the roadway approaches (see back for a map). Average Daily Traffic (ADT) from Hurontario Street north of the structure is 149 vehicles per day and 105 vehicles per day south of the structure during its open season. The bridge built circa 1920’s and non-structural improvements were carried out in 1999 to enhance roadside safety.
The bridge is currently in fair to poor condition, with severely deteriorated concrete through the barrel and headwalls, several concrete spalls and delamination with exposed reinforcing steel with erosion below the foundations. Considering the above, Council needs to decide what to do with the bridge.
At the Public Works budget presentation held during an open session of Council on November 23, 2021, Council reviewed options for the bridge that included rehabilitating the bridge, replacing it, demolishing it, and leaving it as a pedestrian path until the bridge must be removed. Council decided to receive input from residents regarding the future use of the bridge. You can review the report to Council online by visiting bit.ly/2022pwbr.
