Celebrating and preserving Dundas Ontario's scenic and utilitarian pathways and trails
Friday, February 24, 2012
The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) shared the Binkley Hollow replacement bridge drawings with Dundas Walks. The replacement bridge will be the same width, height and length of the former bridge, with a wood deck and railings, but a sturdy steel frame that will have a longer life-span than the wooden beams which it replaces. The work will begin this spring and is expected to conclude in June 2012. A service path beside the bridge is being used as a detour route for cyclists and pedestrians on the Hamilton-Brantford Rail Trail. The bridge drawings indicate bollards at each end of the bridge, but Alexander Bell, Manager of Design and Development at the HCA confirms that they will not be used on the actual bridge, since they would interfere with bicycle traffic.
