Niemeyer Road Bridge Project


Project Overview

This project is to rehabilitate the bridge that carries Niemeyer Road (Township Road 463) over LeBoeuf Creek. It is located between the intersection with East Street and the intersection with Union/Hood Road in Waterford Township, Erie County. 

The single-lane covered bridge was built in 1875 and is owned by Waterford Township. The bridge is rated poor condition and was closed to traffic in May 2011 due to safety concerns. 

Work will include rehabilitating the existing bridge with new abutments, I-beams, and decking to upgrade the structure. Work will also include new roadway approaches and updated guiderail and pavement markings.  

Once complete, the bridge will have a 15-ton weight limit.  

Work is expected to occur in the 2023 construction season.  During the construction, a detour will be posted using Depot Road (Route 2006) to Donation Road (Route 1005).
