About the Norwich Street Bridge improvements

The City of Guelph completed a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study for proposed improvements to the deteriorating Norwich Street Bridge. The bridge crosses over the Speed River between Cardigan Street and Arthur Street North. The bridge is currently closed to vehicle traffic and serves as a pedestrian crossing.The EA study completed in 2017 determined the bridge will be maintained as a heritage structure with repairs to make it safe for future use.

This project involves the preservation of the heritage elements of the existing pedestrian bridge, while constructing a new self-supporting bridge to maintain safe public crossing of the Speed River into the future. The work includes removal of the closed non-heritage pedestrian bridge, cleaning and painting of the iron trusses of the heritage bridge, construction of a new self-supporting bridge between the heritage trusses, repairs to concrete elements, and reconfiguration of the east approach to the bridge.

Construction is expected to begin in September and will take approximately 3 months, weather permitting.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Excellent that the heritage and current transportation function (pedestrian and cycling) of this bridge will be maintained. I hope with the Norwich Street reconstruction that the visual barriers and cycling obstacles will be greatly reduced.
