Bridge Street Reconstruction: Have your Say! We want to hear from you.

Our Bridge Street Reconstruction is an exciting project that will breathe new life into our downtown. We want to hear your thoughts and comments. Please visit the Town of Carleton Place website, HERE to see the downtown renderings and send in your comments. Deadline: February 10th, 2020.

Bridge Street is the Commercial Centre for the Town of Carleton Place, and the central link across the Mississippi River. Reconstruction work is to include replacement of all hard surfaces (Asphalt, sidewalks) between Lake Avenue and Central Bridge.  In addition, being considered for inclusion are new decorative street lighting, new signalized crosswalks, and enhanced streetscaping features.

The Town of Carleton Place is proceeding with the replacement of the Central Bridge, with construction scheduled to start in Spring 2021, which will include a full closure of Bridge Street over the Mississippi River. By combining the replacement of the Central Bridge with the Reconstruction of Bridge Street, the overall duration and severity of public impacts resulting from these required public works are expected to be minimized.

It is expected that this project will result in substantial impacts to residents and businesses.  As such, extensive public consultation will play a key role in project planning.
