June 10-11 closure intended to open Skyway Bridge to two lanes of traffic



UPDATE MAY 30: The closure scheduled for  Thursday, June 6 to Friday, June 7 has been cancelled due to expected poor weather conditions.

It  has been rescheduled to take place from 9 p.m.  Monday, June 10 to 6 a.m.  Tuesday,
June 11.

The closure is intended to open bridge to two lanes of traffic.


During these time periods the highway will be closed, and no traffic will be permitted to pass over the bridge.

The bridge is an 850m long, high-level bridge carrying two lanes of Highway 49 traffic over the Bay of Quinte. The bridge was constructed circa 1967 and was in need of major repairs. The work included the complete replacement of the steel girders and deck, rehabilitation of the piers, and reconstruction of the abutments. The bridge deck will be widened slightly and will include 1.5 m shoulders on each side.

Work began in 2018 with preparations for each segment of the bridge and was to be replaced over five years. It is expected to be opened in the summer of 2024.
