Newly constructed Nipigon River Bridge splits in cold

NIPIGON -- The newly-constructed Nipigon River Bridge has split in the cold.

The Ontario Provincial Police closed Highway 11-17 indefinitely at the Nipigon River Bridge on Sunday afternoon due to "mechanical issues."

OPP Sgt. Greg Moore said an expansion joint has failed, raising a portion of the bridge about two feet. The bolds holding the girder to the bearing have broken on the north side.

The OPP became aware of the issue around 3:05 p.m. and engineers have already been mobilized to fly from Southern Ontario to assess the damage.

"Nothing is getting across that bridge and at this point, we're waiting for engineers to assess the damage," Moore said.

The expansion joint failure cuts the only link connecting Eastern and Western Canada.

The westbound half of the swing bridge opened on Nov. 29, 2015 after three years of construction. The eastbound lanes of the old bridge have been closed for demolition as construction is set to begin on the cable-stayed bridge's mirror half.

Minister of Northern Development and Mines Michael Gravelle's first question will be what progress has been made on that demolition and whether reverting traffic to the existing bridge is a possibility. Although he conceded the story is developing as quickly as he can get information, he recognizes its urgency.

"Clearly, this is an emergency situation," he said.

"There's no question about it. I could not be more concerned and I'm trying to find out as much as I can, as quickly as I can."

Highway 17 traffic is being turned back to Terrace Bay and commercial vehicles are being encouraged to travel west through the United States at the border crossing in Sault Ste. Marie.

Arrangements have been made to ensure ambulance and fire vehicles can cross the sunken expansion joint on metal sheeting, should emergencies arise.

Nipigon Mayor Richard Harvey said no one foresaw anything like this happening.

"My first thought was, Canada is cut in half," he said upon seeing the state of the bridge.

"My second thought was, how can we get traffic moving as quickly as possible again?"

Harvey said Nipigon has taken every precaution, including opening its community centre and Legion for at least the next 24 hours. .

"We're being told it will probably be a couple of days before traffic gets moving so we want to be sure those who are traveling are safe, so no one is stuck out in the cold," he said.

The province estimates the cost on the entire bridge's construction at $106-million and it is slated to be complete in 2017.

I tease and bug you guys about the weather up there and the consequences of that weather but I've always felt folks there are a special breed. I can say I lived up there and lived that stuff for 16 years, and proudly too.

Keep warm and safe.

FROM OPP ON TUESDAY'S COLLISION:
(TEMAGAMI, ON) - On January 12, 2016 shortly before 10:00 a.m., members of the Temiskaming Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles on Highway 11, Temagami.

A northbound Tractor Trailer Unit (TTU) lost control and crossed the centre line. An oncoming southbound automobile avoided the TTU by crossing the centre line and struck a northbound OPP cruiser head on.

The Temagami Fire Department and The District of Nipissing Ambulance Service attended the scene. The police officer was transported by ambulance to the hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the automobile was treated by ambulance at the scene for minor injuries, and the driver of the TTU sustained no injuries. The vehicles carried no passengers.

The OPP Technical Traffic Collision Investigators (TTCI) and The Ministry of Transportation Enforcement Officers (TEO) are assisting with this ongoing investigation.

Highway 11 has been closed in both directions. The estimated duration of road advisory is unavailable at this time. Please do not call the OPP Provincial Communications Centres for updates or road condition information.
