Skyway Bridge planned closure Dec. 7-8

A full night closure is scheduled from 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 7 to 6 a.m. Wednesday,
Dec. 8 for the removal of temporary concrete barriers, temporary energy attenuators, delineators and placing pavement markings.

Aecon construction just held a full closure of the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge overnight Nov. 27 and opened early. That closure was required to complete the final concrete placement to connect the two new decks together prior to final paving before reopening the two lanes to traffic.

Aecon states that due to unpredictable temperatures and the high-performance concrete being used for this 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 forty-eight hours at this time of year.

During these time periods the highway will be closed, and no traffic will be permitted to pass over the bridge. Emergency Services are will follow the protocol outlined with Aecon should they be required to cross the bridge during these times.
