Blacks Bridge Update- Class EA Complete

The County of Middlesex retained Dillon Consulting Limited to complete a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study to determine the preferred long-term solution for the future use of Blacks Bridge. The existing bridge carries West Corner Drive over the Ausable River in the Municipality of North Middlesex, as shown on the map below. The bridge has been closed since September 2019 due to structural deficiencies.

The study is recommending Blacks Bridge be replaced with a new 44 metre (m) single-span bridge on the same alignment as the existing bridge. If you have questions or comments regarding the information provided in the ESR, please contact either of the following project team members listed on the document below no later than July 25, 2022.
