We are helping assess climate risks to create bridge infrastructure resilient to climate change

The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL) manages and operates four international bridges and associated infrastructure in Ontario. FBCL has identified severe weather and the impacts of climate change as a potential risk to their portfolio of bridges, roadways, and supporting infrastructure.

FBCL requested that Stantec complete a climate risk assessment on the bridge assets and develop risk adaptation measures to mitigate the identified risks. We worked closely with FBCL to produce a climate risk assessment that aligned with their policies, practices, and enterprise risk management system. Due to differences in the microclimates between the four bridge sites, climate profiles for each location were completed to account for the variations in climate and weather, including extreme high and low temperature parameters, freeze thaw, rainfall events, freezing rain, snowfall, high wind events, water level changes, winter ice cover, fog, and lightning.

The assessment involved multiple workshops to advise on the respective vulnerability of the assets and develop site-specific risk mitigation and adaptation measures for the highest identified risks at each site.
