Public Notice/REMINDER: Alexandra Bridge-Closed to Vehicular Traffic (At Night Only)

GATINEAU, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2009) - Public Works and Government Services Canada wishes to advise all motorists that the Alexandra Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic in both directions from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. during the first two weeks of December 2009, with the exception of Friday or Saturday nights.

These closures will not affect pedestrians.

These lane closures are necessary to allow for the seismic reinforcement of the piers. This is part of the planned rehabilitation of the Alexandra Bridge announced recently by the Government of Canada under its 2009 Economic Action Plan.

Lanes will remain open between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.

The schedule may change due to weather conditions.

Public Works and Government Services Canada apologizes for any inconvenience these lane closures may cause.
