An extensive rehabilitation of the Gooderham Bridge, on County Road 507, just south of County Road 503 in Gooderham, is beginning today (April 17), and expected to be completed by late summer/early fall.
During construction, travel across the bridge will be reduced to a single lane of alternating traffic controlled by temporary traffic signals. Motorists should be prepared for some traffic delays.
There will be a planned one-day full closure of the bridge in order to complete work that requires the entire bridge deck to be raised. Staff are working closely with the contractor to schedule the closure in order to minimize the impacts of the one-day closure. A minimum of two weeks advance notice will be provided for this closure. In addition, the closure will have advance warning signage, a signed local detour, notification on the 511 system and the County’s website as well as media and social media announcements.
