The Kingston Third Crossing bridge is an essential infrastructure project and the largest to-date for the City of Kingston, Ontario. The new 1.2 km, two-lane bridge spans the Cataraqui River and connects the eastern and western parts of the city, supporting continued growth and enhancing quality of life and community safety.
Bergmann was hired by general contractor Peter Kiewit Sons ULC to serve as Structural Steel Construction Engineer. Bergmann was responsible for steel erection analysis and design of the temporary support system required to keep the 3-span under-arch structure stable during the piece-by-piece steel erection.
The main span steel erection was completed in summer 2021. The bridge is scheduled to open for use in 2022, with final amenities and landscaping scheduled to be completed in 2023.
