St. David Street Bridge (Highway No. 6), Fergus

The St. David Street Bridge has been re-opened

  • Bell has begun their work at the intersection of St. Andrew St. / St. David St. and at the intersection of Bridge St. / St. David St. to pull their wiring beneath the bridge for the conversion of their overhead lines to underground.  Once the underground wiring is installed they will also need to remove their utility pole and guywires.  We anticipate that there may be some traffic disruptions or temporary periodic traffic interruptions for the Bell work,  but that Northbound and Southbound traffic will generally be maintained across the bridge and through the adjacent intersections during the Bell work.
  •  Once the Bell pole and guywires are removed in front of the Old Livery building, the bridge contractor will pour the concrete slab in this area as well as the slab in front of the Brewhouse
