Burlington Canal Lift Bridge - Overnight closures

Media Advisory

For immediate release

Hamilton, Ontario, August 31, 2017 – Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise all users of overnight closures on the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge from September 1 to 30, 2017.

The bridge is scheduled to be closed overnight to vehicular and pedestrian traffic between 9 pm and 5 am from Monday evening to Saturday morning.

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

This schedule may change because of weather conditions or logistical requirements. PSPC will publish notices regarding any schedule changes.

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.
