Victoria Bridge Replacement

About this project

Victoria Bridge is located on Ridout Street South over the Thames River, south of Horton Street East, next to Thames Park. The existing bridge will be replaced with a new “through arch” structure, which will include a widened deck surface to better accommodate bicycle traffic, pedestrians, and improved connectivity with the Thames Valley Parkway.



The project includes road work on Ridout Street extending from the Horton Street intersection to Ingleside Place. The bridge replacement work will require full closure of Ridout Street to motor vehicles, from Horton Street to Ingleside Place, with general traffic detoured to Wharncliffe Road and Wellington Road.


A temporary active transportation bridge will be installed ahead of main bridge construction to maintain access through the area for cyclists and pedestrians during the Ridout Street closure.
