10th Street Bridge - Notice of Project Initiation
Public Notice
Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The 10th Street Bridge is part of the main east-west arterial route through Owen Sound, carrying the highest traffic volumes through the City. In addition to being an integral part of the local road network, the bridge is part of a Provincial Highways Connecting Link system and a connection for Grey County roads.   It services significant volumes of heavy truck traffic and is relied upon by commercial and emergency vehicles. Based on the results of biennial bridge inspections, the existing bridge is deteriorating at an advancing rate. As a result, load posting restrictions or closure of the bridge may be required in the near future. This would have significant negative effects on the local and regional transportation system and the economy. Therefore, the City of Owen Sound, as Proponent, is studying alternative solutions to continue to provide a high level of service for personal, commercial and emergency vehicles through the City’s downtown corridor, while providing minimal disruption to the community in the coming years.
