Burlington Canal Lift Bridge - overnight closures delayed

Media Advisory

For immediate release

Hamilton, Ontario, July 12 2017 – Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise all users of the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge that previously scheduled closures from July 10 to 29, 2017, will be delayed by 2 weeks.

This delay is because of logistical issues in preparing for the work planned. PSPC will confirm the new start date in advance of the closures.

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.
