Community Update: Bobcaygeon Swing Bridge

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

April 25, 2024 – BOBCAYGEON, ON – Work is progressing at the Bobcaygeon Swing Bridge as Parks Canada maintenance teams continue with the installation of temporary end lifts to support normal bridge swing operations for this season.

Parks Canada wishes to remind the community that short intermittent closures may be experienced for testing of these components prior to the start of the navigation season on May 17, 2024. These intermittent closures will be timed to ensure the least impact on the community. If possible, notification will be issued with 24-hour notice for any planned closures requiring a longer duration.

Continued monitoring will be conducted over the operational season to ensure that the bridge is operating within acceptable tolerances. The permanent end lifts will be installed this fall.

We extend our sincere gratitude to the Bobcaygeon community for their patience and understanding during this time. We remain committed to minimizing disruptions while ensuring the safety and functionality of this vital transportation link.

Parks Canada is leading this important infrastructure work to ensure safe, high-quality experiences for visitors by improving heritage, visitor, waterway, and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas, including along the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site.
