Burlington Canal Lift Bridge Operating on A Reduced Schedule for All Marine Traffic

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2012) - The Burlington Canal Lift Bridge is operating on a reduced schedule for all marine traffic.

The bridge will only be lifted once an hour for marine traffic as required.

Lifts will take longer than normal due to a reduced operational speed and to accommodate multiple vessel passages.

The bridge remains open to vehicular traffic when it is lowered.

Updates will be posted as the situation changes.

PWGSC thanks users for their patience.
