Kingston Third Crossing Ontario
Kingston Third Crossing is 1.2km long multi-span crossing of the Cataraqui River, including the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO world heritage site. BEAM is Architect for the project which is the first bridge project in North America to be procured under an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) model, involving a combined team of consultants, contractors and Project Owner. The project is a low-lying viaduct structure in a sensitive ecological environment with significant historic and cultural context. A 95m arch span crosses the southern end of the Rideau forming a legible gateway to North America’s oldest operational canal and a significant engineering heritage asset. A competition rowing course shares the navigation span waters.
