The reconstruction of the bridge over the Quilliams Creek, at Lakeside (route 243) in the path of Brome Lake, will force motorists to take a massive detour this fall. The latest report of the inspection of bridge over the creek Quilliams indicates that at least one beam lost its capacity. The framework also presented significant signs of corrosion.
Transports Québec indicated that the work, which will lead to the complete closure of the 243 will be gradually from August 24 to December 7. The detour proposed by the Lakeside road, 215 and 104 (Knowlton road).
The reinforced concrete girder bridge has a length of 32 m. was built in 1958. The last inspection report indicates that at least one beam lost its capacity. The framework also presented significant signs of corrosion. Some residents feel there was a lack of coordination as the Lakeside Road was recently redone and it seemed smart to have perhaps coordinated the work of the bridge at the same time. As is often par for the course of taxpayers pay while the winners of the tender Job becoming more work.
