Seaway International Bridge
CORNWALL, Ontario - A meeting will be held Friday to go over plans for demolishing the now-defunct northern section of the Seaway International Bridge.
The Federal Bridge Corporation announced this week it has begun the tender process to seek a firm that will dismantle the structure that saw millions of vehicles transit the north channel of the St. Lawrence River, heading back and forth from the city to Cornwall Island.
In January the northern section of the bridge was closed in favour of the new low-level bridge.
A mandatory pre-proposal site meeting will be held Friday at 800 Second Street West, the former Domtar Building, to allow prospective contractors to learn more about the demolition project.
It is expected the old bridge will be completely removed by the end of 2016.
It will cost $75 million for the project, which includes realigning Brookdale Avenue.
