The county is looking at what to do next with the Hawk Lake Bridge.

With the environmental assessment done, Haliburton County is weighing the options during the required 30-day review period.

CC Thatham, the company that did the environmental assessment, gave the recommendation to replace the existing superstructure with a single lane bridge.

Thathem* also suggested raising the bridge by 500 millimetres to improve its hydraulic capacity.

According to Thatham, because there were no requests for a “part two” of the assessment, the county can go forward with implementation.

County staff point out that Thatham’s suggestion would limit the impact the construction would have on the heritage of the bridge.

Now that the study is done, the public can find the complete project file at the county office on Newcastle Street in Minden, or at the Algonquin Highlands Municipal office on Northshore Road in Algonquin Highlands.

Any person wanting to share their thoughts on the project has until April 18th to do so at either of the offices or by contacting the county
