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

Couchiching 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.
