The Bruce County Transportation & Environmental Services Department in coordination with BMRoss, Municipality of Brockton and Municipality of Arran-Elderslie completed a Bridge Infrastructure Master Plan Study in April 2013 to address deficiencies associated with a series of county-owned bridges located on local municipal roads in central Bruce County. An outcome of the Master Plan was the replacement of the McCurdy Bridge on the boundary between Brockton and Arran-Elderslie over the Saugeen River.
An Environmental Assessment for the replacement of the McCurdy Bridge on the Brockton/Arran-Elderslie boundary was completed - the Notice of Completion for this EA is included in the menu on the right.
Construction of the new bridge approximately 50 meters south of the existing structure began in 2018 and will continue into 2019. The current McCurdy Bridge will be retained and remain open to traffic during the majority of the project. The Department will provide advance notice and signage for when the bridge will not be passable for approximately three weeks.
