The west span deck of Ontario’s first cable-stay bridge, which opened on November 29, 2015, split on January 10, 2016 resulting in a two-foot upward shift. Investigatory reports concluded 40 bolts failed due to the uplift from the bridge cables. The $106 million bridge project was delivered by a joint venture with Bot Ferrovial, which will construct a similar bridge to carry traffic in the opposite direction. The failure of a new cable-stayed bridge is considered “highly unusual”.
