Two bridges in Haliburton County are nearing the end of their lives.

The Hawk Lake and Horseshoe Lake bridges are almost 100-years-old and according to engineering assessments will be to be replaced.

The county plans to apply for funding from the Ontario Infrastructure Community Fund to replace the bridges, which are one-lane steel structures.

Warden Brent Devolin says the county is eligible to apply for just over $1.7 million to replace the structures.

Devolin adds council will wait and see what the province’s response is to the county’s funding request before deciding on the next steps.

The deadline to apply for the money is September 27th.
