BRIDGE WORK BEGINS
In the coming weeks, Parks Canada will be conducting spring maintenance at some of our swing bridges and sites along the Trent-Severn Waterway, in preparation for the 2019 navigation season. This includes preventative maintenance tasks like washing and greasing swing bridges and conducting visual inspections to ensure safe operations.
Seasonal maintenance on certain bridges that cross the Trent-Severn Waterway will be underway until mid-May. The work will not result in closures, but vehicles may experience short delays of about 10 minutes:
Carrying Place Swing Bridge
Glenn Ross Swing Bridge
Ranney Falls Swing Bridge (Campbellford)
Hastings Swing Bridge
Bobcaygeon Swing Bridge
Bolsover Swing Bridge
Boundary Road Swing Bridge
Lakeshore Road Swing Bridge
Motorists are asked to plan their routes accordingly in order to avoid delays. To accommodate school bus traffic, efforts will be made to keep bridge delays between 9am and 2:30pm. Parks Canada wishes to thank the public for their patience during the maintenance period.
