Connecting Kingston over the Cataraqui River
In August, Kiewit, Hatch and SYSTRA, were awarded the contract to build and finalize the detailed design. Over the past four months the Project Team, including the city, has been working hard to ensure the best possible bridge will be built. The City is a leader with this project as the Third Crossing is the first bridge in Canada to use an Integrated Project Delivery model. This model has many benefits the project team is already experiencing such as full collaboration on design and construction.
Keeping the project on time and on budget is a primary goal of the city. In collaboration with the contractor and designer some design changes have been made to ensure the bridge will be built within the budget of $180 million and be substantially completed by the end of 2022. The project team will bring all of the design changes to the public once a final design has been achieved, which is anticipated to happen in the next few months. Residents will have an opportunity to review and ask questions to the project team through near neighbour and open house meetings when the team is engaging the public on the environmental requirements for Parks Canada.
This rendering represents a draft concept still being refined. More images will be available once the final design has been complete.
