Other Ontario projects also awarded
Work begins on Burlington Skyway Bridge
Bridges in the Ottawa area and Burlington, Ont., are being upgraded to make them safer for motorists, the province announced Tuesday.
A contract for $971,000 has been awarded to Underground Services Ltd. of Bolton, Ont., for work on the Burlington Skyway Bridge.
Construction is now under way and completion of the work is expected next spring.
The work will take place under the bridge so traffic on the QEW will not be disrupted.
The project involves repairing and replacing the older sections of structural steel on the bridge.
The government is also upgrading bridges along Highway 416 near Ottawa.
The work includes repairs to the Highway 416 underpass bridges at Dilworth Road, Regional Road 19 and North Gower 3rd Line Road.
To minimize disruption to drivers, lane and ramp closures on Highway 416 will only occur during the hours when traffic is minimal and will not take place on civic holidays or Friday afternoons before holiday weekends.
A $485,900 contract for the work was awarded to R.W. Tomlinson Ltd. of Gloucester, Ont. Construction is scheduled to begin this month, with completion expected by late fall.
Meanwhile, the province is also upgrading highways 35 and 118 and the Mountain Lake Bridge on Highway 35 in the townships of Dysart and Minden Hills in the Haliburton area.
The work includes pavement repairs on Highway 35 and Highway 118, repairs to the Mountain Lake Bridge, as well as the addition of a paved truck inspection and weighing area on Highway 35.
While the work is under way, there will be a paved detour on Highway 118 to minimize disruption to drivers.
A $7.9-million contract for the work was awarded to Cruickshank Construction Ltd. of Morrisburg, Ont. Work is scheduled to begin this month, with completion expected in September 2005.
The Ontario government is investing nearly $1 billion in highway infrastructure this year to improve safety, ease congestion and save time for drivers.
