Notice of replacement of Highway 401 crossing

ABERFOYLE - Little comment was made at Puslinch council on Dec. 19 regarding a notice to replace the Concession Road 7 Bridge over Highway 401.

The replacement includes the following:

- a new Concession Road 7 bridge to the west of the existing bridge, accommodating the future widening of Highway 401;

- the Concession Road 7 / McLean Road intersection north of the bridge will be improved to better accommodate truck turning movements;

- traffic on Concession Road 7 and McLean Road will be maintained for the majority of the construction, with some short-term closures required; and

- during installation of new bridge girders and removal of the existing bridge, Highway 401 traffic will be redirected to the emergency detour route.

During construction of the new bridge, the existing bridge over Highway 401 will remain open to traffic.

During construction of the approaches and intersection improvements, a short section of McLean Road, to the west of the existing T-intersection will be closed.

The duration is likely to be approximately two to three weeks. Traffic over Highway 401 will be maintained on the existing bridge and will be detoured onto McLean Road.

Traffic to or from Concession Road 7 north of Highway 401 will be detoured via McLean Road, Brock Road and Wellington Road 34.

During construction of the approaches and intersection improvements a short section of McLean Road, east of the new T-intersection, will be closed. The duration is likely to be approximately one to two weeks. Traffic over Highway 401 will be accommodated on the new bridge and will be detoured onto Concession Road 7 North.

Traffic to and from McLean Road will be detoured via Concession Road 7, Wellington Road 34 and Brock Road.

Single lane closures with flagging or full short-term closures will be required for minor additional pavement tie-in work at the south limits of the new Concession Road 7 alignment and for final surface course paving and pavement marking on both McLean Road and Concession Road 7; and,

Highway 401 traffic will be redirected to the emergency detour route north of Highway 401 along Brock Road South, Wellington Road 34 and Hanlon Expressway during:

- two single-night directional closures on Highway 401 for placement of the new bridge girders; and

- removal of the existing bridge (which is anticipated to take place on a single weekend night). During this time, both new and existing Concession Road 7 bridges will be closed to traffic.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2019 and to continue for one construction season.
