Hwy 49 Skyway Bridge re-opened

UPDATE DEC 15 – Hwy 49 Quinte Skyway Bridge has been re-opened as of 1:40 pm on December 15


UPDATE DEC: 5 – An extended full closure of the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge on County Road 49 originally planned from 9 pm on Saturday, Dec. 7 until 6 am on Monday, Dec. 9 has been rescheduled.

The bridge will now be closed from 6 am on Saturday, Dec. 14 until 6 am on Monday, Dec. 16.


An extended full closure of the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge on County Road 49 is planned for Saturday, Dec. 7 at 9 p.m. until Monday, Dec. 9 at 6 a.m.

During this time, the bridge will be closed, and no traffic will be permitted to pass over the bridge.
In the event of poor weather conditions, the closure is planned for Friday Dec. 13 to Sunday, Dec. 15, same hours.

This closure is required to complete the final concrete placement to connect the two new decks together prior to final paving.

Aecon Construction, rehabilitating the bridge, notes that due to unpredictable temperatures and the high-performance concrete being used for the concrete placement, excessive vibrations need to be reduced until the concrete has reached required strength for traffic to cross the bridge, which can take up to 48 hours at this time of year.

Aecon’s work began in 2018 and is expected to be complete in 2024.
