Trent River Crossing - Revised Notice of Study Completion Extension of Public Review Period to November 3, 2014

Northumberland County has completed a planning study in accordance with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act, following the approval process for Schedule ‘C’ projects under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, for a new Trent River crossing in the Municipality of Trent Hills’ community of Campbellford. The recommended design alternative for the project includes the following key elements:

• A new two lane bridge with sidewalks, plus left turn lanes at the terminal intersections, extending from the intersection of Grand Road and Alma Street on the west side of the Trent River to Second Street near Front Street South on the east side, to be designed to meet the river crossing requirements of the Trent-Severn Waterway;

• Signalization of the Grand Road/Alma Street intersection;

• Realignment of Saskatoon Avenue under the east side of the new bridge;

• Geometric changes to Alma Street and Simpson Street South including minor widening where required and construction to urban design standards; and

• Eventual replacement of the existing two-lane Bridge Street bridge at the end of its structural design life, estimated to be approximately 30 years. 

By this Notice, the Environmental Study Report (ESR) is being placed on the public record. Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice, plus the final detailed design and receipt of all necessary permits and approvals, the project may proceed to construction. Read more>>
