Starting January 10th, 2022, the Central Bridge in downtown Carleton Place will be completely closed to vehicle, pedestrian, and cycling traffic while the bridge is being replaced.
This work will see the entire bridge super-structure replaced, the existing abutments and piers rehabilitated, and new lookout platforms added to the bridge to give residents and visitors space to admire the beautiful views of the Mississippi River. New lighting will be installed to illuminate the underside of the bridge making it a focal point at night. The project is anticipated to be completed in November 2022.
Louis Bray Construction has prepared a video that gives an overview of the upcoming work including the detours that will be in place, and answers some frequently asked questions about the closure.
