Temporary Bridge Closure: Warsaw Road Swing Bridge

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

PETERBOROUGH, ONTARIO – October 27, 2022 – Parks Canada advises that the Warsaw Road Swing Bridge, located on Parkhill Road East between Armour Road and Television Road, will be closed to vehicular traffic for a two-week period from Monday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m. to Friday, November 18, 2022, at 2:00 p.m.

The closure is required to allow for the completion of repairs to the bridge’s metal grating deck. Traffic control measures and detour routes will be in place, and members of the public are advised to obey all safety signage.

Pedestrians and cyclists using the west pathway along the canal, between Parkhill Road East and Woodbine Avenue, may encounter occasional interruptions during the week before and the week following construction while the contractor prepares the site in order to set up and take down maintenance equipment. This site preparation work will not impact traffic flow on Parkhill Road.

Pedestrians and cyclists are advised that the sidewalk on the bridge will be accessible except for approximately two days at the start of the closure to remove the grating panels and again toward the end of the closure to reinstall the grating panels.

Parks Canada thanks area residents and visitors for their patience and understanding.

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 investments in the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site in Peterborough.
