No more Skyway Bridge closures until spring

There will be no closures for the remainder of the winter for the Skyway Bridge at Hwy. 49.

Andy Wallace, contract administrator with McIntosh Perry Consulting Engineers, notes the seasonal shutdown begins Thursday, Jan. 9 and the contraction will return in the spring.

A full closure of the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge on County Road 49 is scheduled for 9 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020.

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

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.
