CARRICK-VICKERS MULTI-USE BRIDGE

Posted by

Golf Links Multi-Use Bridge – 2015  

Project Description

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.

Environmental Assessment (EA) Process

This project will follow the Schedule B Process for the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) (October 2000, as amended 2007, 2011, & 2015). Schedule B undertakings have the potential for adverse environmental effects; these effects are well understood from a technical perspective and are minor in nature. Schedule B projects are required to go through a screening process, including consultation with those who may be affected.


Project File

This website will host the project file documents pertaining to the Schedule B MCEA and will be updated regularly.

TBT Engineering and MNRF partner to restore Raleigh Creek Crossing

Posted by

This past summer, TBT Engineering (TBTE), and MNRF worked closely together to ensure various environmental considerations, including protections, were incorporated into the design and construction of a project to restore a natural stream at the Raleigh Creek Crossing.

Working closely with the assistance of a Fisheries Contract Specialist from TBT Engineering… MNRF Trained Students compiled site information, measured water quality and used backpack electrofishing, seine nets and minnow traps to gather information about fish habitat and local fish species, including Northern Pike, White Sucker, and Yellow Perch.

Congratulations to everyone that was involved in this worthwhile project; the day after construction on the natural stream was completed, fish were already back in the new channel and seemed to love their new home!!
