Burlington Canal Lift Bridge: Daytime Sidewalk Closures

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) - Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise pedestrians and cyclists of restricted access to the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge from July 4 to 29, 2016.

During these dates, the following restrictions will be in place Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.:

  • from July 4 to 29, the north and south pedestrian underpasses will be closed;
  • from July 4 to 15, access to the east (lakeside) part of the Waterfront Trail will be closed;
  • from July 18 to 29, access to the west (bayside) part of the Waterfront Trail will be closed; and
  • from July 18 to 29, the west (bayside) bridge sidewalk will be closed.

The bridge will remain open to pedestrian and cyclist traffic on weekends and weekdays after 5 p.m.

This schedule may change due to weather conditions or logistical requirements. PSPC will publish notices regarding any changes in schedule.

Safety is a top priority for PSPC during this project. The closures are required as part of the project to replace the bridge's controls, drives and cables. The replacement of key components of the bridge's lift system will extend its serviceable life, meeting the needs of both marine and vehicular traffic in the area.

PSPC thanks users for their patience.
