LimogesConstruction is underway on the Highway 417 underpass in Limoges, Ontario. The work is being done by Clearwater Structures, Inc., who were awarded the project by Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation. The work will run from March to June 2015.

In a reminder from Clearwater Structures, it has been noted that “the bridge structure will be periodically reduced to one lane of traffic between the hours of 7am and 5pm in order to complete the installation of the temporary traffic signals. Furthermore, between Mar. 24 and Jun. 24, 2015, the bridge structure will have one lane closed to traffic with temporary concrete barriers in place and temporary traffic signals in effect.”

The Highway 417 Limoges Road (County Road 5) Underpass was built in 1971 and later rehabilitated in 1984 (“to replace expansion joints and add asphalt and waterproofing to the deck”). As reported last year, Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation is “completing a multi-year program to rehabilitate or replace 23 structures in Eastern Ontario, including the Limoges Road Underpass. Work is required at the various structures to address the deteriorating conditions, including the railings/barriers, decks, piers, abutments, girders and roadway approaches.”
