Provencher Bridge Deck Repairs
Ernst Hansch Construction Ltd. was awarded the City of Winnipeg contract to complete the bascule span bridge deck repairs for the original Provencher Bridge.
The construction works included the removal of the existing asphalt to open up the structural steel bridge deck underneath. The steel deck was sandblasted to expose the new metal and studs were rewelded to create a new connection between the floor beams and the structural steel deck. The deck was then recoated using waterproof membrane and asphalt reapplied to the affected areas.
