CARRICK-VICKERS MULTI-USE BRIDGE
Golf Links Multi-Use Bridge – 2015
TBT Engineering Limited (TBTE) has been retained by The City of Thunder Bay (COTB) to provide design and contract administration services for a new multi-use bridge over the McIntyre Floodway that would connect Vickers Street to Carrick Street. The new bridge will be consistent with the COTB Active Transportation Plan and establish a north-south cycling corridor in order to foster a safe, comfortable, and convenient path for cycle-commuting and other forms of non-vehicular travel.
Purpose of the Study
An active transportation corridor that utilizes Carrick Street and Vickers Street as a main thoroughfare was chosen by the COTB as a practical, low-stress, and direct route to link the City’s two cores. A new bridge crossing the McIntyre Floodway was identified as a key component of this route.
The establishment of this active transportation corridor has been identified as a priority action in developing the commuter and recreational network in Thunder Bay.
