16 Mile Creek Bridge – Halton Region, ON

The concrete arch bridge over 16 Mile Creek, west of Toronto, was considered to be one of the finest highway bridges in the province when it was originally built in 1937. Some 19 years later it was widened from four to six lanes but had since become a serious impediment to highway expansion, much like the other area bridges that run across the ravines leading down to Lake Ontario.

Rather than widen the bridge again, the provincial government decided to build a new westbound bridge parallel to the existing bridge. The new bridge, 195 metres long and 24 metres high at its peak, features five precast concrete spans set on four sets of piers, with two abutments on either side of the ravine. 

Aecon was awarded the $16 Million contract, which included installation of a 500-metre concrete pressure pipe watermain, in July 2006.
