Central Bridge Public Consultation Centre
The Central Bridge, located on Bridge Street in downtown Carleton Place, is the central link across the Mississippi River. The bridge was constructed in 1928 and rehabilitated in 1983. Recent inspections of the bridge identified structural deficiencies and insufficient load carrying capacity.
The Town of Carleton Place is considering options to replace the Central Bridge to address the identified structural deficiencies and to serve the Town for years to come. The project works will also include adding a walkway and undertaking repairs to Gillies Bridge and potential widening the other one lane bridge further to the east, with relocation of utilities undertaken as required. Replacement of the Central Bridge and rehabilitation of Gillies Bridge are identified as priorities in the Town’s strategic Asset Management Plan (2017).
The project is being completed as a Schedule “C” project in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015). As such, extensive public and technical agency consultation will play a key role in developing the study recommendations. At this time, it is anticipated that 3 Public Consultation Centres (PCC) will be held during the study.
The first PCC will be held to present preliminary information on the project and to receive input from the public on the key issues and constraints within the study area. The PCC will be held as an informal “Open House” format with materials pertaining to the study on display and members of the project team on hand to answer questions and discuss issues related to the project.
