LASALLE CAUSEWAY—OVERNIGHT ROAD CLOSURES:

CLOSURES: SEPTEMBER 30–OCTOBER 4

KINGSTON, Ontario, September 24, 2013 – Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to advise motorists and pedestrians of upcoming overnight closures on the LaSalle Causeway from September 30 to October 4, 2013, between 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. The Causeway will remain open to emergency vehicles. Pedestrians may experience short delays during these closures. Marine traffic will not be affected.

These closures are required to accommodate a series of precise measurements of the lift bridge in various lift positions. This is the second round of measurements. The next round will be conducted in November and two further rounds will take place in 2014. 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 http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/ontario/lasalle-eng.html.

FERMETURES NOCTURNES DU PONT-JETÉE LASALLE :

DU 30 SEPTEMBRE AU 4 OCTOBRE

Kingston (Ontario), le 24 septembre 2013 – Travaux publics et Services gouvernementaux Canada (TPSGC) souhaite aviser les conducteurs et les piétons des prochaines fermetures nocturnes du pont-jetée LaSalle qui auront lieu du 30 septembre au 4 octobre 2013, de 0 h 01 (minuit) à 6 h. Le pont jetée restera ouvert aux véhicules d'urgence. Les piétons peuvent connaître de légers retards durant ces fermetures. Le trafic maritime ne sera pas touché.  

Ces fermetures doivent avoir lieu pour permettre de mesurer précisément le pont jetée à différentes positions de levage. Il s'agit de la deuxième série de mesures. La prochaine série aura lieu en novembre et deux autres séries auront lieu en 2014. 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.

Vous pouvez trouver de plus amples renseignements sur le calendrier du projet à la page Pont-jetée Lasalle à http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/ontario/lasalle-fra.html
