The County of Middlesex is planning to replace the Waubuno Creek Bridge located on County Road 27 (Nissouri Road) north of County Road 2 (Dundas Street) in the Municipality of Thames Centre (as shown on the accompanying key plan). The bridge is a two-span structure that spans Waubuno Creek and was constructed in 1957. Recent engineering inspections of the structure have identified extensive deterioration of some structural components for the crossing that make rehabilitation of the bridge unfeasible. Replacement of the crossing has been tentatively scheduled for 2024.
