Lift Bridge Closure - December 10-13 Detours

The Burlington Canal Lift Bridge will be closed to all traffic effective Monday, December 10th at 12:01am and until approximately Friday, December 14th at approximately 6:00 AM for emergency bridge repairs. The HSR has been informed that the closure may be extended if the weather does not co-operate.

During the closure '11 Parkdale' will be detoured from Beach at Van Wagner's along the QEW until the Eastport Drive exit. As such the route will not service Beach Blvd between Van Wagner's Beach and Eastport. During the detour the HSR will be operating a special beach shuttle between Eastport Drive and Glow at Woodward similar to the shuttle which was run in the past when the bridge had been closed.
