Status of Conestogo Iron Bridge


Many local Conestogo residents have pretty much given up on using the Glasgow St. bridge. But it’s still there, and to a limited extent at least, still being used.

As far as I can tell the status and future of the bridge were determined in 2019 when it was decided to make minimal structural improvements and, most importantly, limit general traffic to one way – southbound towards Waterloo. A few exceptions are made using a “contraflow lane” (northbound) – Cyclists and horse and buggy traffic.

If you’ve tried to use the bridge going north you will have noticed that there is a “turnaround” on the south side, which is your cue to turn around and go back where you came from.

The official township notice is here.
