The Town of East Gwillimbury (EG) performs inspections, replacements, and rehabilitations for all Town-owned bridges.

Bridge inspections

We inspect bridges every two years as required by Provincial Standard O. Reg. 472/10. The inspections performed ensure the structural integrity, safety, and condition of every Town-owned bridge.

Bridge replacement

Bridge replacement work often involves a redesign to improve its function, followed by the removal and replacement of the bridge structure. While completing replacement work, we may need to temporarily close roads and offer detour routes.

East Townline Bridge Design 

East Gwillimbury has hired LEA Consulting Ltd. to conduct field work to develop detailed design plans for the replacement of bridges #113 and #114 and guardrail improvements on York Durham Line. The impacted areas are noted on the attached map. 

In 2023, contractors completed field work (including photography, field measurements, environmental documentation, utility identification, and street level video capturing existing conditions) to develop detail design plans.

The design process is nearing completion and construction is scheduled for tender in early 2024. Relocation of existing infrastructure around the bridges will be taking place prior construction, with the bridge construction anticipated to commence in Q3 2024.

Additional details about the project and future public meetings will be posted here. You can also sign-up for the Town's eNewsletter at or follow us on social media for updates.

Bridge rehabilitation

Bridge rehabilitations involve repairs to a bridge without replacing the entire bridge structure. This includes work such as repairing the:

  • Road surface
  • Expansion joints
  • Damaged concrete

It also includes restoring the material around the bridge. While completing rehabilitation work, we may need to temporarily close roads and offer detour routes.
