SnowTiger
Completed in 1960 : Crosses Saint John River Structural Type: Arch bridge : Function / usage: Road bridge Within viewing distance of the World's Longest Covered Bridge, the Hugh John Flemming Bridge is a two lane road bridge that also crosses the Saint John River. This is a hugely important transportation link in Carleton County that is counted on by both motorists and the business community. Planned infrastructure improvements will modernize and strengthen it to expand its life cycle. The bridge is 661 m long and spans the St. John River on Route 130. It carried Trans-Canada Highway traffic until 2007. It consists of 12 spans, seven arch spans and five approach spans. Since its construction, very little maintenance has been done on this and many other roads and bridges in New Brunswick. In 2010, major investment is being made to improve many of the provinces travelled routes, including this bridge. The planned work includes rehabilitation of the east and west approach spans and bridge abutments. Crews will remove the concrete deck, curb and sidewalk areas; install new expansion and finger joint assemblies; and place new waterproofing and pavement on the approach spans. The $1.3 million contract was to Atlantic Underground Services Ltd. of Riverview. #1960 #Arch #Bridge #Concrete #New_Brunswick #River #Saint_John_River #Span
