The Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury arch bridge is currently in use and all inspections it has undergone since its opening, including the first general inspection conducted by the MTQ in June 2011, allowed us to conclude that the structure meets design expectations. The bridge was designed by CIMA+ so that it would retain its functionality in the event of a major accident or earthquake that could damage one of the cables supporting the deck.
CIMA+ was proactively involved in the completion of this project by supervising the construction site and delegating a highly experienced team. In fact, the supervisor’s planning for any potential construction problems, especially with regard to the two concrete arches, led to the success of this project whose lifespan is estimated to be over 75 years.
CIMA+’s standards of excellence were recognized. In 2012 this project received an Association des ingénieurs-conseils du Québec award in the Transportation category.
