Fifth Street Bridge Upgrades- Subcontract
The Fifth Street Bridge plays an important role in the entire Comox Valley transportation network serving 20,000 vehicles, 650 pedestrians and 500 cyclists each day. Completed in 1960, the 72‐metre steel truss bridge has two vehicle lanes and 1.5 metre sidewalks on both sides of the bridge. The bridge requires rehabilitation of various elements to maximize its service life to the City of Courtenay. Fifth Street Rehabilitation Project includes: Traffic Management; Removal and replacement of bridge deck topping and installation of new Cathodic Protection systems; Section loss repairs to bridge floor beams; Recoating of handrails; and Replacement of Fortis Gas main support rollers.
