Kingston Mills is the first lockstation at the southern end of the Rideau Canal and connects the waterway to Lake Ontario. In 2016-17, the fixed bridge and its abutments were replaced in order to ensure its continued structural integrity.
Throughout the history of the Rideau Canal, many bridges over the canal along Kingston Mills Road have been constructed and replaced. In 2016-17, the swing bridge underwent rehabilitation including structural steel repairs, sandblasting, and repainting of the bridge structure.
The objective of this project is to undertake major masonry rehabilitations on the historic Kingston Mills locks. The work includes rehabilitation of all masonry components and will include stone replacement, stone repair, repointing and grouting.
