Scope of Work

The Scope of Work (SOW) is the area in an agreement where the work to be performed is described. 

The Scope of Work (SOW) to be performed is as follows. 

  • Remove and dispose of existing pedestrian bridge;
  • Supply and install new bridge and footings; and
  • Landscaping for trail connection and bridge access.

Project Understanding:

The Town of Hinton as approved the replacement of the Maxwell Lake Bridge in the 2018 Town of Hinton Capital Budget. The existing pedestrian bridge is slumping into the wetland and is structurally compromised and no longer safe for public use. 

The new bridge profile is raised higher to support the water flow changes in the Maxwell Lake from year to year. The bridge has been designed to support and enable those with mobility aids to access the bridge. The bridge design supports equipment for boardwalk maintenance by Town of Hinton in areas that were not readily accessible throughout the year.

Project Partners:

From conception through to construction completion, the Town of Hinton and ISL Engineering and Land Services, work in partnership to design, engineer and deliver a project on schedule and budget. Sure-Seal, the General Contractor, is the successful bidder for this project and will be carrying out the scope of work 

Construction Factors: 

While we seek to minimize interruptions at the Beaver Boardwalk, there may be some construction related noise and inconveniences during the course of work. We apologize for any inconvenience this disruption may cause. 

During construction the existing bridge will remain closed in both directions. Community members and visitors are being asked to take alternate routes and follow the safety directional signage in place.  

We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Planning and Development directly on the matter.
