Contract let for Lift Bridge repairs

Today, the Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, announced a contract worth over $21 million to EllisDon  and Chant Limited, in joint venture, located in Mississauga, Ontario, to manage the construction of the bridge deck replacement of the Burlington Canal Lift Bridge.

The contractors will replace the lift span’s bridge deck, restore the approach spans and widen sections of the sidewalk to allow more space for pedestrians and cyclists to cross safely and to improve traffic flow.

These changes will improve the overall operations of the bridge, ensuring the safety of bridge users for years to come. This project will also extend and maximize the life of the bridge deck, sidewalk and approaches.

Construction is anticipated to begin in winter 2023, during the bridge’s annual winter shutdown for maintenance and repairs, in order to minimize disruptions. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2024.
