Central Bridge Closed to Public

Central Bridge – Closure Reminder – As of today, Monday, January 24th, the Central Bridge is now closed to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Detours are in place to assist motorists and pedestrians with alternative routes.

Gilles Bridge Now Open - Gillies Bridge has reopened for public use. The flow of traffic will be northbound only to allow emergency services quicker access to the north side of Carleton Place. 

Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail (OVRT) - Pedestrians are encouraged to utilize the OVRT to navigate their way over the river. Public Works is maintaining the paved portion of the trail throughout the winter to provide pedestrians with a safe route. Additional signage has been installed near the bridge to advise motorized vehicles to watch for pedestrians.  Lighting has also been installed from Rosamond Street to Carleton Junction along the trail to increase the safety for pedestrians.

Downtown is Open for Business - Residents are encouraged to support our local businesses during these challenging times.  Our downtown merchants will remain open for business during the Central Bridge Replacement & Bridge Street Reconstruction and look forward to seeing you! Residents will still have access to businesses located between Bell Street and the Central Bridge.

Should you have any questions or concerns, regarding any of these projects, please call (613) 257-2253 or email dyoung@carletonplace.ca
