chaffeys lock bridge

Cataraqui Conservation is advising users of the Cataraqui Trail that the section of trail at Chaffey’s Lock will be closed in order to complete maintenance work on the bridge.

The construction work will begin on Monday, Nov. 22 and last until, Friday, Dec. 3.

The bridge is being ‘re-decked’ to provide a more consistent and safer surface for trail users. This will mean that the Cataraqui Trail will be inaccessible from Indian Lake Road to Marina Road. The following map outlines the detour route, which essentially starts at Indian Lake Road and shifts onto Opinicon Road, over the locks where it changes to Chaffey’s Lock Road, left onto Marina Road where it will meet the Cat Trail again.

There will also be appropriate signage and barricades to help guide trail users around the construction site. Please abide by them and any instructions given by the work crew.

Users are advised to use extra caution on the detour as the route goes along a busier roadway.

For more information, email or call 613-546-4228.
