HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 23, 2016) - Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise all users of closures on the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge from September 27 to 29, 2016.

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

  • from Tuesday, September 27, at 8 pm to Wednesday, September 28, at 5 am
  • from Wednesday, September 28, at 8 pm to Thursday, September 29, 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 changes in schedule.

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.
