Community Update - Warsaw Road Swing Bridge Opens to Vehicles

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

August 14, 2021, Peterborough, Ontario – Parks Canada would like to advise that the Warsaw Road Swing Bridge has reopened to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Short intermittent delays are expected for operational testing.

The bridge has been closed for a full replacement of the steel swing bridge structure, repairs to concrete abutments, and replacement of mechanical and electrical operating systems. As well, the project has brought the bridge up to full highway loading.

The Warsaw Road Swing Bridge replacement project is part of the Government of Canada’s Federal Infrastructure Investment program. 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. We appreciate your patience while we undertake these important investments into the infrastructure in Peterborough.
