Spring maintenance for Trent-Severn Waterway bridges


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 2018 navigation season. This includes preventative maintenance tasks like washing and greasing swing bridges and conducting visual inspections to ensure their safe operability.

Temporary Bridge Closures
Parks Canada advises residents and visitors of the following temporary bridge closures for regular spring maintenance, weather permitting:

McFarlane Street Bridge (Peterborough), 24 hours: April 10, 2018 at 6:00 am until April 11, 2018 at 6:00 am – inclusive

Warsaw Road Swing Bridge (Peterborough): May 1, 2018 from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm

Maria Street Swing Bridge (Peterborough), 48 hours: April 20, 2018 at 6:00 am until April 22, 2018 at 6:00 am – inclusive

Traffic Delays
Seasonal maintenance on certain bridges that cross the Trent-Severn Waterway will not result in closures, but vehicles may experience short delays of about 10 minutes:

April 9 to mid-May: Brighton Road Swing Bridge
Carrying Place Swing Bridge
Glen 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
Hamlet Swing Bridge (on Canning Road near Washago)

Motorists are invited to plan their routes accordingly in order to avoid delays.  Parks Canada wishes to thank bridge users for their patience during the maintenance period.
