Load posting on Clachan Road Bridge
Municipal officials say a triple load posting of – / 36 / 48 tonnes is being implemented on the Clachan Road Bridge over the Thames River.
The bridge is located on Clachan Road between Austin Line and Longwoods Road.
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent has recently completed an inspection of this structure as part of the bi-annual bridge inspection program.
Due to some deterioration found during the inspection and the requirements of the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (CHBDC) a triple load posting of – / 36 / 48 tonnes is being implemented.
This load posting will remain in place until a rehabilitation takes place in the next few years.
