LaSalle Causeway fully closed after construction mishap
PHOTO COURTESY PUBLIC SERVICES AND PROCUREMENT CANADA - A lifting bridge in the central part of the LaSalle Causeway in Kingston, Ont. is set to be rebuilt. Landform Civil Infrastructures Inc., a Hamilton-based heavy civil construction firm that specializes in bridge reconstruction and rehabilitation, will start work this fall on the green metal structure.

KINGSTON, ONT. — The LaSalle Causeway in Kingston has been fully closed to all public access, including vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians, until further notice.

According to Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), an incident on the Bascule Bridge occurred on Saturday, March 30, at approximately 5 p.m.

An element of the bridge was compromised during construction. No one was injured or harmed as a result of the incident.

Traffic barriers and fencing are in place and traffic personnel is stationed at both ends, PSPC reports.

Motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and emergency vehicles are being asked to use the Waaban Crossing. Detour signs are in place.

PSPC is working on a solution to stabilize the bridge and repair the damaged element but the estimated time for repair is unknown.

A complete assessment of the damage to the structure is needed and can only be undertaken once the affected element can be adequately supported, a release reads.

PSPC will provide more information once available.

More information about the project is available on the LaSalle Causeway: Bascule Bridge rehabilitation webpage.
