About the project
Acting as project engineer/designer, our team was responsible for conducting structural assessments and detailed design for the reinforcement of the post-tension girders of the bridge. The Île-aux-Tourtes Bridge on Highway 40 crosses the Ottawa River, connecting the province of Quebec’s Montérégie and Montreal administrative regions. Rehabilitation work started mid-2017 and was completed early August of 2018.
