The King George VI Lift Bridge will soon re-open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic by day’s end on Friday, July 9th. Final commissioning, safety inspections, and cleaning efforts are underway.

Regrettably, in accordance with gathering restrictions associated with the Province of Ontario’s Step 2 of their Reopening Ontario Plan, unfortunately an in-person bridge re-opening event for the community still is not possible at this time. However, the Project Team has prepared a pre-recorded virtual bridge re-opening celebration video, which will debut on Friday, moments following the bridge’s reopening. Stay tuned for further celebration video debut details…
