HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 13, 2016) - Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise users that scheduled restrictions and closures on the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge in August 2016 have been cancelled.

The overnight closures to all road traffic on August 12, 13 and 14 have been cancelled. New dates for necessary restrictions and closures will be announced soon.

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.
