Temporary lane closure at Kirkfield Lift Lock

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

KIRKFIELD, ON – September 29, 2023 –Parks Canada advises the public to expect traffic interruptions at the Kirkfield Lift Lock from Tuesday, October 3, 2023, to Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 7 am to 5 pm.

A partial lane closure on Kirkfield Road (Highway 503) is required to facilitate crane access, supporting the Kirkfield Lift Lock Urgent Repair project. Traffic controls, including flaggers and signage, will be in place as necessary.

Please note that the walking path for pedestrians to travel from the south side to the washrooms through the road-level walkway will be unavailable during this period.

While repairs progress, Parks Canada continues to advise boaters that single chamber lockages remain in place, operating on demand and taking approximately 60 minutes per transfer.

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 of Canada.
