Crowe Bay Lock 14 and Dam Rehabilitation & Mechanization
March 22, 2019 - Community Update: Construction Update
As a part of an historic investment program along the Trent-Severn Waterway, construction is being completed to rehabilitate the dam and bridge at Crowe Bay Lock 14 in the municipality of Trent Hills.
Crowe Bay Lock 14 and Dam 12 is located just north of the town of Campbellford on the Trent River. The lock at Crowe Bay is one of the only locks on the Trent-Severn Waterway to be constructed on an island, sitting between the river and outflows of the dam, and the headrace (upstream portion) of the power generating station.
The construction project includes:
- The creation of four mechanized gates to replace existing overflow spillways, bringing the dam’s capacity to pass water in line with others downstream
- Modifications to the downstream embankments along the west side of the lock for flood and erosion protection
- The replacement of the headrace bridge, upstream of the power generating station. The bridge serves multiple purposes: to facilitate access to the lockstation; to act as a dam (by using stoplogs underneath) when work is done at the power plant and; in this instance, to act as a road to the dam construction site
- The rehabilitation of approach walls and improvements to public safety at the site
