Preparing for the new bridge
PETE FISHER/Northumberland Today
Work is underway to replace the former Barrett Street bridge in Port Hope. The old Bailey style bridge was removed during a public event on May 13 with help from the 32 Combat Engineer Regiment of the Department of National Defence. The new bridge is expected to completed by the end of this year. The Bailey bridge was brought in as a replacement - and planned to be a temporary stop-gap - following the 1980 flood on the Ganaraska River caused too much damage to the bridge that was at that location.
