Fenelon Canal Reconstruction, 1963

When the Trent Severn Waterway rebuilt the Fenelon Falls lock in 1963 as one stage instead of two, a swing bridge was no longer needed, because the boats would now be low enough to pass under the bridge. A concrete bridge was then constructed. W.G. Jackett & Sons performed the excavation.

A pair of dump trucks wait at the corner of Colborne and Oak Streets to haul away more earth removed from the Fenelon Canal during the big reconstruction project of 1963. Note that the new concrete bridge over the canal had yet to be constructed when this picture was taken, the old swing bridge is still in place.
