French River Dams - Bearing Repairs

This project will be taking place at two dam structures on the French River. The project consists of jacking and lifting the bridge of Portage Dam and Little Chaudière Dam to repair one bearing for each dam. The bearing repair will consist of the removal of the existing grout pad and replacing in kind. Work will be limited to the dam and dam approaches. No vegetation removal or work in water will be required.
