31 Combat Engineer Regiment will begin the process of removing the Niska Bridge in Guelph, ON

31 Combat Engineer Regiment is based in Waterloo and St. Thomas. They will begin the preparations to take down the bridge on Monday, 12 March 2018.  The bridge will then be dismantled and removed over the course of the weekend next. It is planned to recycle the bridge for use in training.

The city of Guelph closed the bridge last year due to concerns about its structural stability. Work to design a new bridge has been in progress ever since.
