Skyway Bridge work expected to resume March 4

Work on the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge is expected to get under way again on March 4.

Aecon Construction, the Ministry of Transportation’s contractor, plans to start temporary single lane closures from March 4th to April 1, 2019 controlled by flaggers, weather permitting.

Starting April 2, the first segment on the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge being rehabilitated will be reduced to a single lane for the remainder of the 2019 construction season which should end in late December.

Traffic is to be controlled by temporary traffic signals which will operate 24 hours a day, seven day a week. During specific occasions the bridge will be required to be fully closed for safety reasons during major construction operations. These full closures will occur at night from Monday-Friday only.
Notifications will be issued two weeks in advance of any planned full closures.

    …which means its time for County residents to stand up for family safety on the unsafe Skyway Bridge, and demand pedestrian protection in the new bridge deck layout.
    As we discovered during the MTO bridge presentation, the MTO has no safety culture, and has turned its back on bridge safety in favour of holding the budget. Indeed, during the recent provincial road talks, the MTO minister dared to speak only of “road quality”, to avoid the topic of road safety. And no journalists picked up on the abdication of responsibility, bad attitude, or dangerous drop in service!
    We discovered during the MTO’s presentation on the Skyway Bridge, that they were unwilling to discuss pedestrian and biking safety in public, and asked me to complete a form.Darkness followed, and it took years before our politicians got it, that the bridge was unsafey. I have the letters.
    If residents are forced to protect their families on their own, why do we need, and pay for fake protection from government?
