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.

Every year, approximately $1M is invested to improve the safety and quality of bridge structures in the County. A bridge can be either a grade separated structure or a culvert that has a flow area equivalent to a 1,500mm diameter pipe.

  • Range Road 214 (north of Township Road 540)
  • Range Road 224 (north of Township Road 530) 
  • Range Road 225 (south of Wye Road)

What to expect

  • Signs will be placed at least five days prior to the start of construction in order to provide motorists and area residents with proper notification.
  • Adjacent residents will receive a notice letter from the County.
