The City of Toronto, with support from the Government of Canada, is making a significant investment in storm water infra-

structure to protect the Fairbank-Silverthorn community from
basement and surface flooding. The project will construct a
three-kilometre long and 4.5-metre diameter storm trunk sewer,
17-km length of storm collector sewers and install 325 inlet control devices to control stormwater going to catch basins. When
construction is complete, the new infrastructure will help to reduce sewer backups and basement flooding for more than 4,645
homes and provide flood protection to a 140-hectare area. The
first contract to construct the storm trunk sewer and some storm
collector sewers is underway. Several shafts have been completed and others are being constructed in anticipation of tunneling
work, set to commence in early 2023.
The Champlain Bridge (also known as Pont Champlain) was a
steel truss cantilever bridge with viaducts constructed of prestressed concrete beams. It crosses the Saint Lawrence River,
connecting the Island of Montreal to its South Shore suburbs.
Opened in 1962, the structure was degraded by de-icing salt. In
2015, construction began downstream on a replacement bridge
designed to handle higher volumes of traffic. The replacement
bridge opened on July 1, 2019, and the old Champlain Bridge
was closed to traffic. The deconstruction project of the bridge
will consist of three methods:
1. The deconstruction of the shoreline sections will be carried
out from jetties set up along the river using standard equipment
(excavators and cranes.)
2. Work from the river, which will be required for over 65 per
cent of the project, will be done with a system of platforms attached to high-capacity lifting towers installed on a catamaran
3. In January 2022, the main span located over the Seaway, the
enormous 117.5-m long and 2,200-tonne component, was lowered 33 metres with strand jacks installed on anchor spans on
each side, onto an assembly of two barges in the middle of the
