This Spring Parks Canada will be conducting spring maintenance at some of the swing bridges and sites along the Trent-Severn Waterway, in preparation for the 2015 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:
May 5 Maria Street Swing Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
May 6 Warsaw Road Swing Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
May 7 McFarlane Street Bridge (Peterborough) 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
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 22 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

Motorists should 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 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Parks Canada wishes to thank the public for their patience during the maintenance period.
