Update as of 8am on Road and Bridge Flooding Status

Bruce County Transportation and Environmental Services continues to monitor all roads and bridges under its’ jurisdiction for flooding and structural integrity.

The high water levels at the Teeswater River Bridge on Bruce Road 3 in Paisley remain a concern and will continue to be monitored.

As reported yesterday, the Chesley Main Street Bridge on Bruce Road 30 (1st Avenue) has encountered significant structural damage which has warranted its’ indefinite closure. This bridge is closed to all vehicular traffic, however at this time pedestrian traffic is permissible. The County along with structural engineers continue to assess the condition of the bridge structure. This bridge has been identified in our long range plan to be replaced in 2021, however this flooding damage has now moved the replacement to an immediate need. The County is investigating the requirements and timing of a quick replacement.

Bruce Road 1 in Paisley from Duke Street to Wellington Street remains closed at this time.

Any update of any closures will be provided through our website at www.brucecounty.on.ca/road-conditions. Detour information can be located at www.brucecounty.on.ca/road-construction.

Please exercise caution when traveling over roadways, bridges and culverts.
