REMINDER/Alexandra Bridge: Upcoming Closure to Southbound Lane

GATINEAU, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - Public Works and Government Services Canada wishes to advise all motorists that from April 6, 2010 until October, 2010, the Alexandra Bridge's southbound lane to Ottawa will be closed to vehicles. During this period, the bridge's one remaining lane will be open to either Ottawa- or Gatineau-bound traffic, as follows:

  • Weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. — open to Ottawa-bound traffic only.
  • Weekdays from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. — open to Gatineau-bound traffic only.
  • Weekdays from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. — open to Ottawa-bound traffic only.
  • Weekends and holidays — open to Ottawa-bound traffic only.

The boardwalk will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists at all times.

Public Works and Government Services Canada apologizes for any inconvenience these closures may cause. These closures are necessary to allow for the reconstruction of the southbound lane.
