Construction got underway Tuesday for repairs to the Lansdowne Street bridge in Peterborough, Ont.
The city says the bridge approach repairs by Dufferin Construction are expected to be completed this fall. The bridge spans the Otonabee River at Lock 19 of the Trent-Severn Waterway.
“The scope of work generally includes removing the asphalt and granular road base, inspecting the bridge approach slabs, installation of new road base granular, base and surface asphalt on either side of the Lansdowne Street West bridge,” the city said.
Traffic is expected to be reduced to one lane in each direction until the project is completed, the city said.
Access for local traffic will be maintained during the lane reductions, however, the city says motorists “may experience” delays within the construction limits.
