There are several different types of bridges, which could be constructed to replace the Swing Bridge to Manitoulin Island.

Andrew Healy, Environmental Planner with the Ministry of Transportation say different types include swing, lift or bascule, which all open, a fixed bridge or a tunnel.

Healy adds maintaining the Swing Bridge is not an option, nor is a ferry.

There were also seven corridor options presented, but three have been nixed while the other four would all allow access to Little Current, an important consideration when looking at construction.

The costs of the bridges range from $130- to $150-million dollars while a tunnel would cost half-a-billion.

Healy says the next step is to collect and review all the comments from stakeholders with plans to host another open house next year.
