News Tidbits – The Nipigon River Bridge is number eight in the top 10 of Roads and Bridges Magazine’s best-of list from a total of 60 North American bridges. The bridge was started in 2013, and received international notoriety when 40 bolts attaching a main deck girder to the northwest bearing failed, causing the deck to lift by 24 inches. Temporary measures were put into place and the bridge reopened 17 hours later. After redesign, the bridge was completed in November 2018.
