Cameron Street Bridge
The Cameron Street Bridge was closed to vehicular traffic in late September 2005, due to significant deterioration of members in the 75 year old timber structure. The bridge was replaced with a new concrete superstructure which opened August 24, 2009 to vehicular traffic.
More information is available on Cameron Street Bridge page.

Salt Management Plan
Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and beginning in 1995, road salts underwent a comprehensive 5-year assessment. The assessment report published in 2001 concluded that high releases of road salts were having an adverse environmental effect on freshwater ecosystems, soil, vegetation and wildlife. A multistakeholder working group, which included members from provincial and municipal road authorities, industry, environmental and non-governmental organizations, worked together over a two-year period to develop a Code of Practice for the management of road salts. The main objective of the Code of Practice is to ensure environmental protection while maintaining roadway safety.
In September 1998, City Council approved the trial use of Anti-icing liquids in the downtown, bounded by Winnipeg Street, First Avenue, Fifteenth Avenue and Lower Patricia Boulevard. Anti-icing is the application of a liquid de-icer such as magnesium or calcium chloride, which has other additives to significantly reduce corrosion concerns from the chlorides and to reduce their environmental impact. The objectives of this trial are to improve road safety, reduce the use of abrasives, which contribute to high dust levels, and to improve the level of service. The costs associated with this program are modest in comparison to the benefits anticipated.
The early results of this trial and the experience of other communities are positive. City Council has also approved the installation of pre-wetting equipment on the City's remaining sanders, which hopefully will reduce the volume of abrasive and de-icer use in all areas of the City. By spraying liquid de-icer on sand or salt our expectation is that the sand will stick to a cold and dry pavement or will embed into the icy surface due to the de-icer coating on the sand or salt. Other agencies have been able to reduce their use of abrasives and salt by approximately 30% by prewetting. The liquid used in Pre-wetting is the same that is used in Ant-icing and as noted above.
