Nassau Mills Lock 22 Concrete Work to Begin

Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site


Peterborough, Ontario, October 25, 2016 - During the week of October 31st , 2016, Parks Canada will begin concrete repair work at Nassau Mills Lock 22 on the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site.

The construction contract for this project was recently awarded to Louis W. Bray Construction. They will be setting up on site during the week of October 24th, 2016. The repairs will reconstruct the lower lock approach walls and rehabilitate the abutments to ensure continued structural integrity and functionality of the lock.

The first stage of their work will be the installation of a cofferdam to create a dry work area around the lock. Work is scheduled to be complete by May 2017.

This project is part of Parks Canada’s unprecedented $3 billion dollar investment over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. These historic investments will mitigate health and safety risks, halt the loss of nationally significant built heritage and stimulate the economy in communities across the country.
