Multiple highway realignments and bridge replacements provide improved long-term transportation infrastructure in Ontario

MTO Bridges

Associated Engineering is providing engineering services to the contractor as part of a design-build project for the Ministry of Transportation Ontario. Located in the East Region, the $19 million project involves the realignment of Highway 28, 118, and 7, including key bridge replacements on each of the highways. 

The project is helping the Ministry of Transportation Ontario to keep their capital program on track, while renewing aging infrastructure components to provide reliable transportation facilities for Ontario residents and travellers.

As prime consultant, Associated Engineering completed the design and is currently assisting the contractor with the construction services to meet the summer 2021 completion date. 

The project included soft soils at the Highway 7 site and required the implementation of ground improvement through controlled modulus columns in order to reduce the schedule. In addition, a railcar temporary bridge was used to reduce costs at the Highway 118 site.

The project includes adaptation for climate change as all three structures were sized for rainfall events that may be more intense due to climate change.

Our key personnel on the project include Domenic Di Flavio, Jessica Garrett, Tony Merlo, Rey Rimando, Max Wallen, Angela Peck, Simone Bourke, Tina Keochanh, Josh Hubert, Mark Torrie, and Christian Concolino.
