parks canada worker

**EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 29** Parks Canada will be doing work on the Brass Point Swing and Fixed Bridges on Burnt Hills Road connecting Highway 15 and Battersea Road from Monday, November 6, 2023, to Wednesday, November 29, 2023. The bridges will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians, and detours will be in place for the closure.

This historically significant bridge is the last remaining bridge of its kind (multi-span with a swing bridge) on the Rideau Canal. Originally built in 1887, the wooden spans were replaced with steel spans in 1903, and new cribbing was installed in 1978. Since then, the bridges have faithfully served the community and the boating public but are now in need of repair to ensure continued safe operation.

Parks Canada thanks the public for their patience and understanding as they undertake this important work.
