Notice of Study Completion Hickey Bridge Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The Corporation of the County of Peterborough has completed a Schedule “B” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for the contemplated replacement of Hickey Bridge (Structure No. 032001), located in the Township of Douro-Dummer. Hickey Bridge is located on River Road (County Road 32), approximately 1.8 km south of County Road 33 and provides two-lanes of traffic over Sawyer Creek.

Structural Design Report/Class EA Project File Hickey’s Bridge Site No. 032001

Hickey Bridge has been in service for ±60 years, and no rehabilitation history exists for the structure. Recent structural inspections have identified several sources of deterioration which require intervention in the form of rehabilitation or replacement.

The preferred solution, identified through the Class EA process, is replacement of Hickey Bridge. The recommended replacement structure is a like-for-like bridge structure comprised of precast concrete box girders with concrete topping slab and combination barrier railing and curbs supported on new concrete abutments on prefabricated steel foundation boxes. Through the Class EA process, mitigation measures were developed with respect to impact to the natural environment and built heritage.

The Class EA Project File will be made available for public comment during the 30-day public review period following the issuing of this Notice of Study Completion on the County’s website at the following link: https://www.ptbocounty.ca/en/living/notices-of-construction.aspx

Interested persons may provide written comments to our project team by March 15, 2024. All comments and concerns should be sent directly to the County of Peterborough or its’ Consultant (D.M. Wills Associates Limited) at the following addresses:

Notice of Study Completion - Nichol’s Cove Bridge - Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The Corporation of the County of Peterborough has completed a Schedule “B” Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for the contemplated replacement, rehabilitation, retirement, or repurposing of the Nichol’s Cove Bridge (Structure No. 099055), located in the Municipality of Trent Lakes. The Nichol’s Cove Bridge is located on Northern Avenue, approximately 3.35 km south of County Road 36 and 0.1 km east of Kennedy Drive and provides single-lane access over Miskwaa Ziibi River.

The superstructure (truss) of Nichol’s Cove Bridge has been in service for ±78 years, beyond its intended design life, and is currently load posted. The load posting limits the types of vehicles that can use the bridge and will continue to depreciate into the future. Recent structural inspections have identified several sources of deterioration which require intervention in the form of major rehabilitation or replacement.

The preferred solution, identified through the Class EA process, is replacement of the Nichol’s Cove Bridge. The recommended replacement structure is a single span, single-lane modular bridge structure supported on new concrete abutments. Through the Class EA process, mitigation measures were developed with respect to impact to the natural environment and built heritage.

The Class EA Project File will be made available for public comment during the 30-day public review period following the issuing of this Notice of Study Completion on the County’s website at the following link: https://www.ptbocounty.ca/en/living/notices-of-construction.aspx
