ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — Repairs to the concrete bridge deck on the Garden City Skyway are now underway.
From Mar. 19, through until June 30, the Skyway will be reduced from six lanes to four according to Transportation Minister Brad Clark. The work is part of a $17.8-million, three-year project that started last year.
“We recognize the Queen Elizabeth Way is the key transportation corridor to and from border crossings along the Niagara frontier, used by hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks each day,” said Clark. “As a result, every attempt is being made to minimize traffic delays and complete the repair work as soon as possible.”
To mitigate possible traffic delays, the Ministry of Transportation is implementing high-tech solutions to inform motorists about the construction and to keep traffic moving. These include: electronic changeable message signs; queue end warning signs; video monitoring of the work zone; dedicated tow trucks; highway advisory radio and signed detours for local St. Catharines traffic.
