Cowan’s Bay Bridge Rehabilitation To Begin July 2

KAWARTHA LAKES-The municipality will be starting the rehabilitation of the Cowan’s Bay Bridge on Peace Road (CKL 14) over the Pigeon River in Kawartha Lakes this summer.

The construction work is anticipated to start Tuesday July 2, 2024. During the work, traffic in the area will be reduced to one lane with alternating directions controlled by temporary traffic lights. Short traffic stoppages should be expected. Weather permitting, the construction is anticipated to be completed by October 24, 2024.

Project Scope:

  • Patching, waterproofing and paving of the bridge’s deck top slab.
  • Removal of the existing sidewalk and curbs on deck, as well as the wingwalls and retaining walls on approach; they will be reconstructed with a new four tube combination railing system.
  • Construction of new concrete approach slabs.
  • Installation of new joint seals.
  • Concrete patch repairs to the precast girders, abutments, wingwalls and retaining walls on the bridge.
  • Approach paving, shouldering and granular sealing.
  • Grading and installation of erosion control measures at each quadrant.

The Cowan’s Bay Bridge rehabilitation project has been awarded to Beton Inc. The municipality has also retained DM Wills Associates Limited for project management and inspection services.
