MARKHAM, ON

The Milne Dam Pedestrian Bridge is a multi-span, cable-stayed structure spanning the environmentally sensitive Rouge River in Markham, Ontario.

The 45-metre main span crosses above the Milne Dam and features a fanned cable design with architecturally tapered steel pylons founded over 20 metres below the cable anchor points.

As a signature structure, the Milne Dam Pedestrian Bridge is completed with unique stainless steel metal rod railings anchored to the deck panels with custom-engineered cast-in anchors and railing posts.

To lessen the difficulties of erection on a site with limited access, the twin-girder steel superstructure was detailed for modularity and prefabricated into segments. To speed up the erection process the structure also features precast concrete deck panels that are precisely detailed to match the geometry of the curvilinear west approach spans.
