AND FRIENDS THROUGHOUT TRENT HILLS
DOES CAMPBELLFORD NEED
A SECOND BRIDGE?
OR JUST A BETTER BRIDGE?
IT'S YOUR MONEY.
IT'S YOUR COMMUNITY.
Trent Hills and Northumberland County have spent
over $250,000 of taxpayers money ($200,00 for consultants alone)
on an Environmental Assessment (EA) promoting a second bridge from Second Street to Alma Street
in Campbellford. They propose to spend $15 million to build
this new bridge. And then another $15 million to rebuild the existing bridge.
Your taxes! Your money! For what? A faster trip to Timmy's?
Bridge Street works! Do we need a second bridge?
- Use the existing bridge
location: it has been there for 150 years
- Fix the traffic lights
and turn signals! (They are better already!)
- LATEST INFORMATION: A 3 Lane Bridge St. bridge will work best according to bridge engineers.
Is Second Street/ Alma a better route? NO!
- Keep Bridge Street the
heart of Campbellford as it has always been.
- Build a by-pass bridge for
heavy through traffic if that's what's needed!
What's Wrong with a Second to Alma bridge? LOTS!
- Over 50 homes will be affected and over 300 people directly impacted.
Traffic will funnel through
residential areas instead of business and commercial zones.
Will a second bridge help us grow and prosper?
- It will take traffic away

how traffic will zoom by our stores.
What can you do to stop it?
- See the menu on the left
and pick a destination.
- Contact the Council and
have your say.
- Attend the Bridge Steering Committee and other public meetings.
The homes shown below are only some of the fine heritage
houses that will be impacted by a bridge connecting Second and Alma Streets.
Over 50 homes and 300 people will be impacted by increased
traffic, noise, vibration, fumes even after the two years of construction disruption.
