Parks Canada says that the Hamlet Bridge Replacement project, originally scheduled to be open for vehicular traffic this fall, will be delayed until early 2020.

Parks Canada says the contractor at Hamlet Bridge has assembled the new swing bridge in place on the centre pier and assembled the fixed bridge on barges immediately downstream. The fixed bridge will be floated into position and lifted into place when the east pier has been completed in Spring 2020.

The Hamlet Bridge is located at the intersection of Canning Road and Peninsula Point Road, and connects the townships of Severn and Gravenhurst.
