Spring Maintenance, TSW Bridges

Posted by admin on Apr 12th 2016

Parks Canada is preparing for the 2016 boating season, maintaining bridges along the Trent Severn Waterway. Some temporary closures are involved.

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 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:
