Why are the bridges being considered for replacement?

/Why are the bridges being considered for replacement?

The era of the bridges constructed on the initial Queensway in the early 1960’s had expected service lives of 50 to 60 years.  The rigid frame bridges were the most durable bridge types built in that time period. As each of the seven bridges within the study area is at or nearing the end of their service lives, the MTO is assessing whether it is time to replace the bridges or if they may be rehabilitated for one more cycle before replacement. That decision will be the subject of the EA.
