Two-Lane Bridge

Welcome news! MP Rick Norlock, announced on May 19th, 2015,  that funds have been allocated by Parks Canada to replace the Murray Canal Brighton Swing Bridge with a new two-lane swing bridge built to current standards. The Historic Murray Canal District has been advocating for a new two lane bridge since March 2014 when plans for a single lane bridge were announced by Parks Canada and the Federal Government.

On this page we’ll track the project to build the new bridge and continue to advocate on behalf of our members and supporters to ensure their interests are served and their concerns addressed.
