ELORA – The new Badley Bridge is still on schedule and will reopen in late fall.
The historic downtown Elora bridge was demolished in January of this year and was anticipated to be reopen in November.
County of Wellington construction manager Joe de Koning confirmed by email this was still the case and the project is on schedule to reopen to vehicles in November and be fully finished in December.
Looby Construction Ltd. based out of Stratford is building the bridge on behalf of the county. The pandemic meant additional measures have been put in place for workers but this has not delayed the project.
De Koning said they had recently placed two-thirds of the girders across the span of the bridge. The last set of girders will be placed by the end of August.
