The Hastings Bridge is a federal asset and will be closed by Parks Canada in January, 2016 for replacement. 

The Municipality of Trent Hills remains committed to working with the residents, businesses and the community organizations of Hastings to mitigate the impact of this closure on the local economy and the daily lives of Trent Hills residents.

All Municipal and emergency services will be delivered to Hastings throughout the closure.  

This page will be updated as information is received; please check back frequently.

Community Care Northumberland is pleased to announce that in partnership with the Municipality of Trent Hills, a new courtesy van service has launched to help residents manage the challenge of the bridge closure in Hastings.


This courtesy van service runs on Wednesday only and will help residents travel the detour around the bridge closure, allowing them to conduct errands that would normally require them to cross the bridge in Hastings. 

The Municipality of Trent Hills is subsidizing this van service so there is no cost to passengers.
