Road Closures and Construction

Major road construction projects have wrapped up for another year. The North Shore, Battersea and Alton Road projects were funded in part by the Canada Community-Building Fund. These main arteries were identified in the 2022 Comprehensive Roads Needs Study as having some of the lowest pavement condition ratings in the Township. To learn more about the study and to see our 5-Year Plan for Hard Surfaced Roads and Bridges, see the project page on engagefrontenac.ca.

Thanks to residents for their cooperation and to the CCBF for helping to fund and support local infrastructure priorities. 

The following road projects are currently underway. Please note projects may be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, such as weather and supply chain issues. You can also follow updates on significant road projects at engagefrontenac.ca. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 613-376-3027 ext. 4331 or by email pwsupport@southfrontenac.net

Long Swamp Road Bridge

On September 18, 2020 at 1:00 pm, the Township closed the Long Swamp Rd Bridge until further notice.

This closure is the result of safety concerns surrounding Long Swamp Rd Bridge. Township Staff is in the process of undertaking a structural assessment of the bridge to determine what, if any, remedial work is required.

Due to the bridge closure, the Township closed Long Swamp Rd from Bellrock Rd to just south of the Long Swamp Bridge. This closure will not affect access to homes in the area, which can continue to be accessed by Long Swamp Road from the South via German Rd or Huffman Rd. Access to Bellrock Rd can be obtained via Road 38 in Verona.

For more information, please contact our Public Services Department at 613-376-3027 ext. 4331.

The Township asks that drivers plan their routes accordingly and obey all signs and traffic controls in work zones to ensure the safety of local workers.
