Located on Chiefswood Road, 400m north of 3rd Line in Oshweken, a village on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve, Bridge 9 was originally constructed in 1968. At some point the bridge was widened, and there was significant deterioration on the original section. McIntosh Perry examined the bridge and compared the possibility of rehabilitation and full replacement and because of delaminations, spalls and cracks on soffit, abutments and curbs, as well as efflorescence and leakage at joints between structure sections, scaling, spalls and wet areas, a full replacement was designed.
In addition to the design of the replacement, McIntosh Perry also acted as the Contract Administrator.
McIntosh Perry prepared the contract drawings, tender document, specifications, and periodic cost estimates for Six Nations. We worked closely with Six Nations and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in order to meet all requirements of both groups.
