As part of this project, Parks Canada had arranged for a temporary pedestrian crossing to be put in place before the bridge was closed. The contractor is on site installing the temporary bridge and has other work to conduct on site in advance of closing the bridge.
Rather than close the bridge prematurely, the contractor has agreed to keep the bridge open until Monday February 5th as continued traffic across the bridge will not inhibit the successful completion of the ongoing work at the site.
Parks Canada would like to thank the Burritts Rapids community for their patience and understanding as we complete these important repairs.
Through investments in infrastructure, Parks Canada is protecting and preserving our treasured places, while supporting local economies, contributing to growth in the tourism sector, and enhancing the charm and attractiveness of Canada’s heritage sites.
