REMINDER/Burlington Canal Lift Bridge-Overnight Closures

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 2, 2015) - Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to advise motorists, pedestrians and cyclists of nightly closures on the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge, located in Hamilton, Ontario.

From Monday, July 6 to Friday, July 10, 2015, the bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic every night between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained or accommodated.

The two outside lanes of the bridge will be closed from July 13 to August 31, 2015. During this period, two-way traffic access will be maintained at all times. Pedestrians and cyclists will continue to have access to the bridge.

This schedule may change due to weather conditions or logistical requirements.

Short-term closures of the bridge or of individual lanes will continue to occur periodically during the project. PWGSC will publish notifications regarding upcoming closures, restrictions and any changes in schedule.

Safety is a top priority for PWGSC during this project. 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.

PWGSC thanks users for their patience.
