REMINDER/Burlington Canal Lift Bridge: Overnight Closures

HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 28, 2016) - Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise all users of closures on the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge from November 28 to December 3, 2016.

The bridge is scheduled to be closed overnight to vehicular and pedestrian traffic during the following periods:

  • from Monday, November 28, at 8 pm to Tuesday, November 29, at 5 am
  • from Tuesday, November 29, at 8 pm to Wednesday, November 30, at 5 am
  • from Wednesday, November 30, at 8 pm to Thursday, December 1, at 5 am
  • from Thursday, December 1, at 8 pm to Friday, December 2, at 5 am
  • from Friday, December 2, at 8 pm to Saturday, December 3, at 5 am

Please note that rush hour and marine traffic will not be affected.

This schedule may change due to weather conditions or logistical requirements. PSPC will publish notices regarding any schedule changes. Additional overnight closures are projected throughout the month of December.

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.

Safety is a top priority for PSPC during this project, and the Department thanks users for their patience.
