NOTICE: Extended full closure of Skyway Bridge December 7-9

An extended full closure of the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge on County Road 49 will take place from 9 pm on Saturday, December 7 until 6 am on Monday, December 9.

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

• In the event of poor weather conditions, the closure will occur from 9 pm on Friday December 13, 2019 until 6 am on Sunday, December 15.

• This closure is required to complete the final concrete placement to connect the two new decks together prior to final paving.

• 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 48 hours at this time of year.

• Please refer to the Glenora Ferry website for information about an alternative route.

• Aecon Construction and Materials Limited is rehabilitating the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge for the Ministry of Transportation. The work started in 2018 and should be completed in 2024.

• Visit the project website at  for more information.

Please note: The County of Prince Edward provides this information as a service to the general public. While we do our best to provide accurate information, construction projects and associated service disruptions are subject to change based on weather, road, traffic, and other uncontrollable conditions.
