Temporary Bridge Closure: Warsaw Road Swing Bridge

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

Peterborough, Ontario, June 23, 2022 – Parks Canada would like to advise the public that the Warsaw Road Swing Bridge, located on Parkhill Road East between Armour Road and Television Road, will be closed to all vehicular traffic starting on July 4 at 9:00 a.m. until July 8 mid-day. Traffic control measures and detour routes will be in place for the duration of the work.

At this time, selected grating panels of the metal bridge deck will be removed, repaired and reattached to the bridge to reduce the noise caused by vehicles using the bridge. Following an observation period during the summer months, similar work may be completed on the remaining grating panels in the fall.

Parks Canada understands the frustration this situation has caused and would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding. The repair work will not impact navigation along the waterway.

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.
