Posted on Monday November 08, 2021


The County of Peterborough has retained BT Engineering Inc./ Entuitive to complete the design for the rehabilitation of the County Road 14 (Yankee Line), James A. Gifford Causeway, and Chemong Bridge. Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) funding has been obtained by the County to fund these projects.

Project Process

Project 1: The County Road 14 (Yankee Line) rehabilitation has been completed as a Schedule A+ Environmental Assessment (EA) Study under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) (2015). The rehabilitation works are being constructed in fall 2021/spring 2022.

Project 2: A Schedule C EA for the James A. Gifford Causeway rehabilitation was completed in 2013. The proposed design will include active transportation and road surface improvements as recommended by the EA. This PIC is presenting the proposed recommendations for the rehabilitation works to be constructed in 2022.

Project 3: The Chemong Bridge project will involve major rehabilitation of the bridge superstructure (bridge deck, railing, sidewalk, etc.) to achieve a minimum 35-year extension of service life to the bridge. Traffic will be maintained across the bridge during construction by means of single-lane traffic control signals. The PIC is presenting the proposed remedial works to be constructed in fall 2021 and future rehabilitation works to be constructed in 2023.
