The Municipality of West Grey will hold a meeting about the management of its bridges. The meeting, held in council chambers at the municipal office on February 6, 2020 at 7 pm, will include presentations by Vance Czerwinski, Director of Public Works and Katherine Hemstock, Consulting Engineer with WSP Canada Inc.

WSP Canada Inc. is a management and consultancy company recently tasked with completing a full evaluation of the bridges and culverts in West Grey. Because of the unique features in Bentinck, Glenelg and Normandby, the Bridge Rationalization Study was being completed in three phases but will take all of West Grey’s bridges and culverts into consideration.

Including the Neustadt and Ayton dams, West Grey has a total of 106 structures, 104 of them are classified as bridges. The typical lifespan of a structure ranges from 75 to 100 years. Many of the bridges in West Grey were built before 1950, with 36 of those nearing the end of their useful life span. 

Everyone is welcome to attend the February 6 meeting. For more information on the Bridge Rationalization Study, visit the Municipality of West Grey website.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
