Fairway Road Extension and New Bridge Over The Grand River

January 28, 2010 at 10:16 pm 1 comment

Construction is planned for 2010 to extend Fairway Road from Zeller Drive in Kitchener to Fountain Street and Kossuth Road in Cambridge. The new four lane road will have two lanes of traffic in each direction, bicycle lanes,  and sidewalks on both sides. There will also be roundabouts placed at either end. In addtion, a four-span bridge, with no piers in the water, will be built over the Grand River. It will feature scenic lookouts, custom architectural details, and connections to the Walter Bean Trail. Construction is expected to be completed in 2012 to the tune of approximately $54 million.

$54 million? I wonder what the cost per kilometre would work out to be…??

    Where will the traffic be directed through to get to the bridge? Do you have any pictures of what it will look like?
