Bridges cracked and corroded

Through provincial access to information legislation, The Telegram obtained inspection reports on 731 bridges. They were built as far back as 1925 and as recently as last year, although only 61 of them were built this century. Stories ran in The Telegram print edition June 23, 2012 accompanied by photos and graphics — all now part of this collection.

Bridges cracked and corroded
The bridge on Harvey Street (Route 70) in Harbour Grace, near the entrance to Riverhead, was built in 1969 and is in quite a dilapidated state. Vehicles are forced to slow down and swerve around the oversized potholes created by missing asphalt. Also, water runoff has severely eroded the earth near the bridge abutments. — Photo by Terry Roberts/Transcontinental Media
