New weight restriction on Main Street bridge
The weight restriction on Pointe-Aux-Pins Creek bridge on Main Street in Ardrossan has been decreased to 10 tonnes (10,000 kg). See map.
Please use alternate routes.
The new weight restriction protects the stability of the bridge and the safety of all motorists.
Complete bridge replacement is planned for 2025, pending regulatory approvals.
The Ardrossan Hamlet Roads Upgrade project will enhance road safety, efficiency and usability for residents.
The planning, design and construction of this multi-phased project is scheduled to take place from fall 2015 into the coming years, pending Council approval of annual budgets.
Pointe-Aux-Pins Creek Bridge
With the Main Street loop completed, and further development happening in the Hamlet of Ardrossan, the bridge crossing Pointe-Aux-Pins Creek needs to be replaced. The narrow bridge is not built to accommodate the increased demands. The scope of this project component consists of upgrading the current Pointe-Aux-Pins Creek Bridge into a 9.0m two-lane, rural, standard collector road with a 3.0m asphalt trail located on the west side of the new bridge.
This project is currently in the Design phase.
- March 2020 – Final bridge design was delivered by the consultant. This project is currently scheduled for construction in 2025, pending regulatory approvals.
- March 2018 – Design completed.
- August 2017 – Consultant selected to complete preliminary and detailed design.
The scope of this project component is to upgrade Main Street from Range Road 221A to Arbour Close into a two-lane, standard rural collector road. The project will include the construction of approximately 250 meters of sidewalk on the west side of the road. In addition, some minor traffic calming will be introduced at the intersection of Third and First Avenue.
This project is currently in the design phase and scheduled for construction in 2025, pending funding and regulatory approvals.
Timeline still to be determined.
