Aecon Construction and Materials Limited (“Aecon”) is rehabilitating the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge on
Highway 49. The work started in 2018 and should be completed in 2024.
This letter is to notify you that there will be an extended full closure of Highway 49, Bay of Quinte
Skyway Bridge from 9:00 pm on Saturday December 7, 2019 until 6:00 am Monday December 9, 2019.
During these time periods the bridge will be closed, and no traffic will be permitted to pass over the
bridge. In the case of poor weather conditions, the closure will occur from 9:00pm on Friday December
13, 2019 until 6:00 am on Sunday December 15, 2019.
This closure is required to complete the final concrete placement to connect the two new decks
together prior to final paving before reopening the two lanes to traffic.
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 requires strength for
traffic to cross the bridge, which can take up to forty-eight hours at this time of year.
Please refer to the following website for the Glenora Ferry as an alternative route:
Emergency Services are kindly requested to follow the protocol outlined with Aecon should they be
required to cross the bridge during these times.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Nuno Saramago (Superintendent) at

We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate your understanding.
