(Hastings, ON) — Rick Norlock, Member of Parliament for Northumberland-Quinte West, today announced changes to the timeline for the Hastings Swing Bridge.
The Government of Canada is investing $4 million in the community of Trent Hills to replace the Hastings Swing Bridge. Until construction starts, Parks Canada is taking every step to ensure the bridge remains open and accessible to the community.
Parks Canada is continuing to work with the project manager at Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to replace the Hastings Swing Bridge in a timely fashion.
Work is starting in early October to competitively select a company, and initial repair on site will commence this fall. Construction consists of grouting the rock foundation under the pivot pier and will involve drilling holes in the rock and injecting a foam grout into voids within the rock, which is anticipated to take 20 days. No road closure is expected as a result of this construction phase.
