Rehabilitation of Firehall Bridge in Millbrook

The County of Peterborough is preparing to rehabilitate the Firehall Bridge, located in Millbrook on County Road 21 (King Street East) east of Tupper Street (CR 10).

Construction is to take place from June 13 - October 31, 2022, with the removal and replacement of the concrete deck, sidewalks and railings.

During this period, passage of over-width vehicles and equipment will be restricted due to a 3.5 metre wide single traffic lane restriction that will be in place at the bridge.

Please be prepared to find an alternate route for oversized equipment to avoid the lane restriction at Firehall Bridge.

Contact the County at 705-775-2737 ext. 3200 for any additional information.
