The rehabilitation of the Norris Whitney Bridge that connects Prince Edward County to Belleville is set to begin June 1.
On Thursday, the County’s committee of the whole carried a motion granting a noise bylaw exemption to AECOM to begin the work that is projected to be wrapped up on November 30.
The Ministry of Transportation retained the company to complete a detail design and class environmental assessment study for the rehabilitation of the Highway 62 bridge.
The rehabilitation of the bridge will include replacing areas of asphalt and waterproofing; patch repairing areas of concrete on the deck surface, abutments, wingwalls, sidewalk, barrier walls and critical areas of the deck fascia on the east side; replacing the expansion joints and portions of the barrier walls to accommodate the new joints; and replacing the pot bearings at the abutments.
There will be no construction completed on Sundays and statutory holidays.
