The Teeswater River Bridge in Paisley was constructed in 1935 and features rare cultural characteristics like curved concrete T-beams.

After providing 85 years of service to the community, this bridge is now experiencing deck deterioration, scaling, concrete spalling and delamination, joint expansion, and sidewalk soffit deterioration.

Construction on the Teeswater River Bridge is scheduled to start in the Spring of 2022, after completion of the Class Environmental Assessment and community engagement. Bruce County strives to enhance roadways and infrastructure in sustainable and innovative ways. Bruce County is an upper-tier municipality in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, made up of 8 lower-tier municipalities and 68,423 residents.

The explorers who visit, live, and work here are the dreamers who take roads less travelled and see tried and true as an invitation to try something new. Be an Explorer and call Bruce County home.
