Port Severn Road North Closure at Bayview Dam E Bridge

Posted On Wednesday August 29, 2018

(Peterborough, ON) – Please be advised that on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 the closure of Port Severn Road North will begin. The road closure will allow for the rehabilitation of the Bayview Dam E Bridge. Work is scheduled to be completed in late December 2018. 

Beginning on September 4th, Highway 400 from Port Severn Road North will offer the alternate driving route to cross the waterway (detour route attached). 

The work on the Port Severn area dams is part of Parks Canada’s unprecedented $3 billion dollar investment over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway, and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. These historic investments will mitigate health and safety risks, halt the loss of nationally significant built heritage, and stimulate the economy in communities across the country
