Souris Swinging Bridge Replacement - 2014

Stantec Consulting Ltd.

Stantec was engaged by the Town of Souris to develop a replacement structure for the iconic swinging bridge that was destroyed due to record flooding in 2011. To reduce the risk of flood damage, the design called for the elimination of all piers and the construction of a single span across the river. The replacement structure developed is a 184 metre long clear span pedestrian suspension bridge, the longest of its kind in Canada. The combination of site influence, design considerations, type and length of the bridge resulted in a complex engineering challenge.
