HIGHWAYS 6 & 401 IMPROVEMENTS FROM HAMILTON NORTH LIMITS TO GUELPH SOUTH LIMITS
Replacement of the Puslinch Concession Road 7 Bridge over Highway 401 (G.W.P. 3224-15-00)
Design and Construction Report
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is moving forward with the replacement of the Concession Road 7 Bridge over Highway 401 in the Township of Puslinch. Construction of this bridge replacement is expected to start in 2019. The new bridge over Highway 401 will be built to the west of the existing bridge, and will accommodate 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. During removal of the existing bridge, Highway 401 traffic will be redirected to the Emergency Detour Route, which is anticipated to take place on a single weekend night.
A Design and Construction Report has been prepared to document the detailed design and is now available for a 30-day public and agency review period commencing August 20, 2018 until September 18, 2018.
