Update on LaSalle Causeway

This information is shared on behalf of Public Services and Procurement Canada. 

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) would like to provide an update on the LaSalle Causeway closure, following the most recent public notices issued on  June 4, June 5 and June 20.

On June 20, 2024, PSPC issued a public notice indicating that the LaSalle Causeway was fully open for marine navigation. With the navigation channel now open, PSPC is currently focusing efforts on completing analysis and developing options to reinstate access for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians through a temporary bridge solution.

PSPC appreciates the impacts of the closure of the LaSalle Causeway to vehicular traffic. These impacts include restricted access to downtown Kingston, and broader commuting delays that will be further exacerbated in the late summer and early fall.

In collaboration with the City of Kingston, PSPC is actively evaluating options to reinstate vehicular and pedestrian traffic, while continuing to accommodate marine traffic. The chosen solution and associated timelines, once determined, will be communicated in a future public notice.

In the interim, PSPC expects that the marine navigation channel will remain open to marine traffic. This is subject to any required works on the existing structure that may necessitate a temporary closure, in which case a public notice will be issued in advance to advise the public.

PSPC remains committed to protecting the safety of Canadians through ongoing investments in its infrastructure. More information will be shared as it becomes available. We encourage users to consult our public notices and social media channels for updates.

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
