Bridges and Structures
Local Road Bridges
In general, bridges on public roads that are not on the provincial highway network or within a City boundary are considered a local road bridge. Direction, control and management of most local road bridges is the responsibility of the local municipal government.
The Local Road Bridge Program depending on budgets, provides funding assistance to municipalities for construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance of bridge structures on local roads. Funding guidelines under this program are detailed in the GAP-01 document.
The following documents provide design guidance for local road bridge structures:
- Local Road Bridge Design Guidelines (May 2014) – design guidelines for local road bridges. This document supersedes the GAP-03 document referenced in the GAP-01 document
- Local Road Standard Bridge Drawings (February 2015) - standard bridge drawings that can be used on local roads that are not part of the provincial roadway network.
- Culvert Design Sheet (April 2007) – a form that can be used instead of site specific design drawings for bridge size CSP and SPCSP culverts.
