The Twenty Mile Creek Arch Bridge (Structure 081210) was constructed in 1940, and is in Jordan Hollow approximately 550 metres west of Nineteenth St. where Regional Road 81 crosses Twenty Mile Creek.
The bridge functions as a two-lane arterial road serving east / west traffic flows. This thoroughfare provides access to residential, commercial and recreational uses and crosses the Twenty Mile Creek. Land use within the study area is primarily residential, commercial and recreational.
A Rehabilitation / Replacement Planning Report was prepared by Hatch Mott MacDonald in June 2010 which recommended a full bridge replacement. In addition to the report, Niagara Region does a biennial bridge inspection of all bridge structures under its jurisdiction. The last biennial bridge inspection was done in 2017, and the bridge was determined to have cultural and / or heritage value.
As a result, we're completing a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. As part of the assessment, the public and stakeholders will be consulted on planning and design alternatives for the bridge replacement. Once the assessment is complete, Niagara Region will proceed with the design and construction of the preferred design solution.
