Bridge Construction & Maintenance

The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 has 11 major bridges, 25 standard bridges and approximately 150 bridge-sized culverts within its boundaries. A bridge is defined as any span structure (deck) or any culvert over 1500 millimeters in diameter. A major structure is 4500 millimeters in diameter or larger. The M.D. makes the application for provincial grant funding for eligible bridge projects.

The M.D. participates in the Bridge Information and Maintenance System (B.I.M.S), which is a province wide inventory of bridges maintained by Alberta Transportation. The regional bridge coordinator annually forwards a list of bridge files within the municipality to be inspected within the year. These bridges are inspected, prioritized and presented for review and approval so that engineering work and contract tendering can be initiated. The M.D. utilizes consultants for bridge inspectors, design and construction supervision.
