Manitoba fast-tracking reconstruction of Pierre Delorme Bridge
The Manitoba government is investing $15 million to fast-track reconstruction of the Pierre Delorme Bridge in St. Adolphe.
Reconstruction was temporarily halted this spring due to high water levels on the Red River, but work on the project will resume once river levels recede. The project tendered in phases to get it done quicker.
Since last fall, completed repairs include: planning and demolition of damaged portions of the bridge, detailed design of the repairs and ground stabilization work to prevent the riverbank from moving under the bridge’s supports. Construction crews were able to minimize damage to the rest of the bridge during the demolition phase.
The bridge was closed in August, after part of its pier support system shifted and caused part of the top span of the bridge to buckle.
