Lasalle Causeway—Overnight Road Closures

KINGSTON, Ontario, September 10, 2013 – Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to advise motorists and pedestrians of overnight closures on the LaSalle Causeway taking place during weeknights until September 20, 2013, from 12:01 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. The Causeway will remain open to emergency vehicles. Marine traffic will not be affected. The Causeway will be closed to pedestrians during this time.

These closures are required to accommodate a series of precise measurements of the lift bridge in various lift positions. Four additional rounds of measurements will be conducted over the next several months and will be announced in advance. The schedule may change due to inclement weather or logistical requirements.

Safety is a top priority for PWGSC and we are committed to ensuring the continued integrity of the bridges we manage. We apologize for any inconvenience these closures may cause and thank everyone for their understanding.

Further information on the project schedule can be found on the LaSalle Causeway web page at

Fermetures Nocturnes Du Pont-Jetée LaSalle

Kingston (Ontario), le 10 septembre 2013 – Travaux publics et Services gouvernementaux Canada (TPSGC) souhaite aviser les conducteurs et les piétons des fermetures nocturnes du pont-jetée LaSalle qui auront lieu en semaine jusqu'au 20 septembre 2013, de 0 h 1 (minuit) à 6 h. Le pont jetée restera ouvert aux véhicules d'urgence. Le trafic maritime ne sera pas touché. Le pont-jetée sera fermé à la circulation piétonne.

Ces fermetures doivent avoir lieu pour permettre des mesurages précis du pont-jetée à différentes positions de levage. Quatre autres séries de mesurages seront effectuées au cours des prochains mois et elles seront annoncées à l'avance. Le calendrier pourrait changer en raison de mauvaises conditions météorologiques ou d'exigences logistiques.

La sécurité est la principale priorité de TPSGC, et le Ministère s'engage à assurer l'intégrité continue des ponts qu'il gère. Nous nous excusons pour tout inconvénient que ces fermetures pourraient vous occasionner et nous vous remercions de votre compréhension.
