Brighton Road BridgeIn 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 2016 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 would like to advise residents and visitors of the following temporary

bridge closures for regular spring maintenance, weather permitting:

May 3 Warsaw Road Swing Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM

May 4 Maria Street Swing Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM

May 5 McFarlane Street Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 AM – 2:30 PM

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 18 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 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 9:00 am and 2:30 pm. Parks Canada wishes to thank the public for their patience during the maintenance period.
