Challenge

The project included the conceptual and detailed schematic design of the demolition procedure for the existing concrete box structure over the Grand River. The bridge had to be carefully dismantled to avoid adversely affecting the river’s ecosystem.

Solution

Our team developed a demolition strategy that did not rely on access from the river in order to meet environmental restrictions on in-water work. The developed solution included a sequence of structure removal and stabilization. The implementation of this approach proved crucial when a flash flood of the Grand River brought water to the underside of the existing bridge during the demolition work.
