12th Line Bridge 12004 Replacement

Please be advised that the Town of New Tecumseth has recently awarded the “12th Line Bridge 12004 Replacement” contract to Alexman Contracting Inc. The Ainley Group has been retained to provide contract administration and inspection services for this project on behalf of the Town.

This contract is for the replacement of the 12th Line Bridge No. 12004 located on at Innisfil Creek, approximately 400 metres east of Sideroad 10. In addition to the full bridge replacement, the Works also include road reconstruction at the bridge approaches, slope flattening, stabilization of the creek bank southwest of the bridge, and site restoration.

Work is to begin during the week of September 12, 2022 with completion of the project anticipated by August 25, 2023. Work is expected to continue right through the winter with a possible shutdown in the spring (March to April) due to the seasonal load restrictions on local roads.

Due to the nature of the project 12th Line will be closed to through traffic between Sideroad 10 and Sideroad 15. Local access will be maintained throughout construction. Further notices will be provided to the impacted property owners on 12th Line prior to full closure.

Construction and advisory signs will be erected prior to construction. We advise that when driving or walking around the construction work zone, that you follow and obey all construction signage for your safety and for the safety of the workers.

It is expected that you may experience some delays and inconvenience during this time, and in this regard, we respectfully ask for your cooperation and patience in order to complete this project in a timely and efficient manner.
