Kalmo Road Bridge

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Kalmo Road is a two-lane collector roadway located in Val Caron. The Kalmo Road Bridge (Whitson River crossing) was originally constructed in the early 1980s and underwent emergency repairs in1998 to address some structural deficiencies and maintain its weight posting. The current structure is a single span, single lane steel modular bridge (Bailey Bridge) with timber decking and timber crib abutments.

The bridge is showing signs of deterioration and damage and its remaining service life is anticipated to be less than nine years. Kalmo Road, including the Whitson River crossing, provides an important link between the communities of Hanmer/Capreol and Val Caron and has seen increased traffic volumes resulting in occasional traffic bottlenecks and safety concerns at the bridge. As such, a two-lane bridge is now warranted.

The City of Greater Sudbury has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study through its consultant AECOM to evaluate replacement and rehabilitation alternatives to address the structural and capacity needs of the Kalmo Road Bridge.
